Live Reporting: Discussion / Action Items

Updated folder with link to documents for School Committee meeting

3. Discussion / Action Items

a. Policy – Second Reading
I recommend adoption of the following policies as discussed.
Policy CBD – Superintendent’s Contract
Policy ADF – Wellness Policy

motion to accept, seconded, passed 7-0

b. Proposal for FHS Seniors late arrival or early release during study hall pilot
I recommend temporary suspension of policy JH – Student Absences for the purpose of piloting late arrival/early release for FHS Seniors during quarter 4 as discussed.

proposal for this class to pilot, would effect 2 of the 7 day rotating schedule, so something less than 200 kids at any time, more likely closer to the 200/7

would allow for some late sleep, some early dismissal, some traffic alleviation, and a perk for those who can benefit. Could only happen in 4th quarter due to the time required by state for learning in specific topics

motion to accept, seconded, passed 7-0

c. School Start Times Advisory Committee Appointment
I recommend approval of the remaining School Start Times Advisory Committee appointment as discussed.

motion to accept, seconded, passed 7-0
(note this is currently the only publicly available name of any of the members of this committee)
