Trustees seek input on policy revisions
Before giving them final approval School District 27 trustees are seeking public input on one new policy and three policies which have been redrafted with changes.
The policies regard the community use of facilities; budgeting; whistleblower protection (new); and response to cases of anaphylaxis.
At the December and January open board meetings trustees gave notices of motion of their intent to adopt the new or revised policies.
People interested in having input to the policies can view them on the district’s website.
In reviewing Policy 3513 Community Use of Facilities and Ground trustees considered mitigating board liability; security and safety standards; costs incurred by the board. Revisions to this policy are extensive and will affect all users of school facilities.
In reviewing Policy 3110 Budgeting the proposed changes reflect a more streamlined policy.
The trustees developed the new Whistleblower Protection policy as recommended in a school district review by the Auditor General’s office.
Policy 5141.2 Anaphylaxis (protocols for treating anaphylaxis shock) is being updated at the recommendation of the Safe Schools team of the Ministry of Education.
