Center School District’s Board of Education will meet Monday, June 25, at 7 p.m.
Superintendent Bob Bartman will recommend that the board approve the budget he is proposing for the coming school year. According to state statute, the deadline for school boards to approve annual budgets is July 1. The district faces a number of budgeting challengers this year, especially declines in local, state and federal funding.
Also this evening, district administrators will propose that the board revise eight district policies. All are changes proposed by the Missouri School Boards Association. There is a July 1 deadline for the board to revise some of these policies to be in compliance with a new state law — the Amy Hestir Student Protection Act — which the Missouri General Assembly passed last year. This Act requires all Missouri school boards to create written policies describing what information they will provide to other public schools regarding former employees. It also requires districts to disclose whether teachers have resigned after being threatened with termination following allegations of sexual misconduct. Because of concerns that districts may be required to release such information even if the allegations turn out to be untrue, the Missouri School Boards’ Association is suggesting policy revisions in an attempt to protect districts from being sued.
Tonight’s meeting, which is open to the public, will take place in the Board Room; Boone Elementary School; 8817 Wornall; Kansas City, MO 64114. Next month’s meeting will take place Monday, July 23.
