Policy Updates: First Reading
Attached are several policies recommended for revision by WSSDA:
Policy 1610: Conflicts of Interest
When Woodland became a Class 1 District in 2007 this policy was not updated. As well, WSSDA has updated language for the purpose of clarity.
Policy 2411: Certificate of Educational competency
The changes reflect increased clarity and comply with revised WAC.
