What happened: The board adopted a policy on volunteers.

What it means: The updated policy changes rules on background checks for visitors and volunteers in the classroom and lunchroom. It requires volunteers and visitors to have a background check completed and reviewed every three years. The previous policy required checks every five years and did not include visitors. The background check costs $13.95.

 

What happened: The board approved a policy on public attendance at school events.

What it means: The policy updates an existing policy, making changes to sentences covering service animals. Dudley said it was recommended by CCS’s attorneys that a sentence be removed from the policy that requires visitors to have evidence of certifications for the services animals. Another update changes references of “service dogs” to “service animals.”

 

What happened: The board approved a resolution establishing a school safety referendum fund.

What it means: Roger McMichael, CCS assistant superintendent of business affairs, said a school safety referendum fund must be established as a result of the community passing the school safety referendum.

 

What happened: The board approved an amendment to a past transfer.

What it means: At the end of 2019, the board approved a resolution to transfer approximately $16 million from the district’s education fund to the operation fund. The amount has been amended to approximately $12.8 million. The board unanimously approved the amended transfer.

 

What happened: The board adopted a policy on staff evaluation.

What it means: The former staff evaluation policy was updated to remove outdated and erroneous information. The board unanimously approved the policy.
