29. Inspector General Selection

Minutes: 

Board Members agreed by consensus that a majority (four) vote would determine who is selected for the IG position.  Ballot votes were casted and then counted by Mayra Stafford and Maggie Llanes with the final vote being given to Mr. Barbieri who announced that Mr. Chiu had four votes out of the seven School Board Members and invited Mr. Chiu to address the Board.  Mr. Chiu thanked the Board for their confidence in him and his staff and they will pledge to do their very best for the School District.  Mr. Blair Littlejohn will process the paperwork.

30. LR 1 Adoption of Policy 5.011 Student Residence Enrollment Requirements (4A)
Attachment: LR1.4A.2.pdf
Attachment: Q&A.LR1.pdf
Minutes: 

Dr. Robinson asked for clarification of the striked through of lines 205-210.  Legal explained  this was a mistake and the most recent version, voted on at the previous Board meeting, did not have the strike throughs.  She also expressed concern that the wording in Line 47, "telephone interpretation services for lesser spoken languages," sounded like a judgement.  The wording will be tweaked by Legal to make it more clear.  She also recommended monitoring students who register over the next year using cell phone bills and rent receipts to see how high the number is and whether or not we need to investigate those registrants.  Mr. Barbieri suggested not accepting cell phone bills and rent receipts as proof of residence because addresses can easily be changed with the phone company without address verification and rent receipts can easily be purchased.  Mrs. Andrews agreed with investigating where needed but asked that it not be part of the policy.  Mr. Gent will discuss with staff.



Motions:

I recommend the adoption of Policy 5.011, Student Residence Enrollment Requirements

Attachment: LR4.5A.1.pdf
Attachment: Q&A.LR4.2.pdf
Minutes: 

Dr. Robinson asked for clarification of who will decide whether the content of a meeting is appropriate for the school.  Blair Littlejohn explained the Principal is the first to decide, but can elevate it to the Area Office, or all the way to the Superintendent, if necessary.  Legal will work with Principals to give them guidelines to follow when making these decisions.  Mrs. Brown notified the Board that she has requested the Superintendent to regularly notify staff when new policies are adopted and what the expectations of staff will be.



Motions:

I recommend that the Board approve development of the proposed revised Policy 7.18, entitled Community Use of School Facilities.
