Park School District’s Board of Education met Thursday evening, March 7. From a policy standpoint, the highlights of their agenda were:
- Unanimously voting to approve revision of the district policy governing “Staff Conflict of Interest“
- Unanimously voting to allow district administrators to hire an outside agency — SafePlans — to provide a safety and security assessment of district schools
- Unanimously voting to approve the establishment a partnership between the Park Hill School District and the Northland Advanced Career Studies board of directors. According to the agenda:
Northland Advanced Career Studies (ACS) is a program developed to serve the educational interests of students in Northland School Districts by developing partnerships between businesses/industries in our region and our Northland School Districts. These partnerships are being created in order to expand opportunities for students in the region to experience curriculum that is designed around business and industry standards and learning environments that are project based.
