With the appointment of Mr. Tom Guthrie as School Director, the board has determined that a change in the day of the week on which board meetings are held is necessary to accommodate the attendance of all school directors.
Policy 1400 has been amended to reflect a change to the second and fourth Wednesday of each month. In addition, changes have been made to more precisely address specific impacts of holding meetings using an electronic format, such as video conference.
Typically new and amended policies are adopted at a meeting following the first reading on a meeting prior. Insofar as the board wishes this change to take place immediately there is authority, under Policy 1310 to adopt a new policy or a policy revision in a single meeting.
Policy 1310 states:
"In the event that immediate action on a proposed policy is necessary, the motion for its adoption will provide that immediate adoption is in the best interest of the district. No further action is required. All new or amended policies will become effective upon adoption unless a specific effective date is provided in the motion for adoption."
Administrative Recommendation /MOTION/ "I move that, in the best interest of the district, we immediately approve revisions to policy 1400 as presented at first reading."
