Turner School District’s Board of Education is meeting Tuesday, June 19, at 6:30 p.m.

In addition to routine agenda items – such as reviewing revisions of the substitute teacher handbook and buying new school buses — board members will consider creating a new district policy and oversee the sale of a closed building.

Superintendent Michelle Sedler is recommending that the board adopt a policy allowing teachers to use their personal computers and other electronic devices for educational purposes in the classroom. Staff members would be allowed to connect wirelessly to the school network. Security of the equipment would be the teachers’ responsibility, not the district’s.

Also this evening, the unnamed buyers of the closed Morris Elementary School building will ask board members to amend the contract to allow closing to be moved to August. Closing was supposed to have taken place Friday, June 15. According to the buyers, they have secured financing for the purchase but need more time to secure financing for building improvements. The name of the buyers and the amount they are paying for the building will be disclosed after the sale is finalized.

The meeting, which is open to the public, is taking place in the Board Room of the Administrative Service Center; 800 S. 55th St.; Kansas City, KS 66106. The next meeting — which will conclude the fiscal year — will be Thursday, June 28.
