In School Superintendent Kevin Skelly's January 17 "Weekly" communication to the board, he reports that the agenda for the January 28 board meeting will include discussion of "next steps" toward a Bullying Policy "should the board wish to have one." An excerpt from Skelly's report is below:
"Our January 28 meeting will be devoted to new courses that will be recommended to the Board for the upcoming year and a series of new/updated Board policies. This covers the August and October 2013 policy updates; staff recommended changes to the Basic Aid Reserve policy; and the recommendations for modifications to our Uniform Complaint Procedure, Sexual Harassment policy, and Non-discrimination/Harassment policy. We will also be prepared to discuss next steps toward a Bullying Policy, should the Board wish to have one. Note: the CSBA template is for an optional policy. Staff will be recommending that we have a Bullying Policy and discussing a timeline for its development. Kathleen Ruegsegger has included Administrative Regulations that staff adopted and optional policies and regulations that will not come to the Board for adoption, unless we hear from any of you otherwise. (see list on next page)."
