First Reading of Policies Revision, Additions and Deletions

Attached are several policies that have been reviewed.   Policy 2153 through Policy 2421 were reviewed against WSSDA Recommendations and are recommended for an update, adoption, or in some cases deletion.  The most substantive change in that block of policies is 2410, High School Graduation Requirements.  The current policy and procedure are highly redundant.  This revision of 2410 moves the bulk of the information into the procedure (which is currently being reviewed for update by the WHS Administration and Counseling staff).

Other policies (2023, 3115, and 5401) are updated per the recommendation of WSSDA in the two most current Policy News (also attached).
