The Plymouth School Board approved several school policy updates this week. “These policies are surrounding background checks, reporting of child abuse/neglect, suicide prevention – all things that reflect updates to statute from last legislative session,” explained Superintendent Andy Hartley.
The Plymouth School Board will consider a few start-of-the-year items when it meets tonight. Board members are scheduled to reorganize, set their pay for the year, and approve their 2018 meeting schedule. Various appointments will be considered, as well as the renewal of the school board’s contract with attorney Jeff Houin.
Making sure kids in foster care have educational stability is the goal of a new policy approved by the Plymouth School Board last week. It calls for Plymouth Schools to enroll foster students immediately, even if they don’t have all the documents that would normally be required, like birth certificate, immunization records, or proof of residency.
Policies adoption was the main focus of the Culver Community School Board meeting that took place Monday night.
Superintendent Karen Shuman said that some of the policies and procedures were already in place but the board needed to have a first reading in order for them to be entered into the system. She said one policy that was noticeably changed had to do with background checks.
