Discussion on Board Policy Review


^G-2900 Anna talked about what she learned in a Worker’s Comp meeting last month. Mr. Lackey suggested asking the lawyer on the policy if he has encountered this with other districts, can we offer a similar benefit and how do we do this. Mr. Lackey will address the concern to Mr. Williams with NMSBA.


Mr. Lackey talked about Sandra’s question on alternative graduating reequirements. He explained what we have done in the past. Sandra wants to be sure we have something in the policy to cover this.


G-4600 – Professional Staff Schedules and Claendars – Take out the word “written” where permission needs to be given to bring children to work with staff members.


G-5050 – Remove the word “building” in front of athletic director.


^G-5361 – Remove the wording “(minimum of thirty{30} uninterrupted minutes)” . Question: on the board being over termination. The second to last bullet under Level I – change the wording from Board to Superintendent. Under the last bullet under Level II/III, change the wording to Superintendent and take out Local School Board. 


G-5800 – Take out the wording for Board to terminate or notify of termination and replace duties for Superintendent

G-7300 – Change to “at least two weeks in advance” from 20 Days


^G-7650 – Do Bus aids have to have a pre-employment screening? Do they need to be on the random draw? Is this in law? We need clarification since we do not require this at this time.

G-9150 – Same changes need to be made as for professional staff reduction in force.


G-9200 – There was a question as to where to reference back to for vacation payout. It currently states 

Cross ref-GDL and should be G3200 #8


G-9300 – Would it be possible to combine Professional Staff with Supportive Staff Discipline? There are very few differences and could be added together to save space.


G-9350 – Same question as above


Possible have Cindy be at the next work meeting, since the next section has to do with curriculum.
