Policy Committee Meetings
The Policy Committee generally meets on the 4th Wednesday of every month. The Committee members consider both new subject matters for policy consideration as well as systematically review existing policy to ensure that they reflect current practices and are in compliance with state and federal law. Some policies have an accompanying Administrative Regulation which provides more detailed information about process and procedure matters related to the Policy.
Committee co-chairs Julie Haywood and Dan Schultz hosted board members Joel Fishbein, Tyrone Scott, Charles Burdell-Williams, Bill England and David Cohen, superintendent Dr. Wagner Marseille, administrators and solicitor for a virtual policy committee meeting on Wednesday, May 27.
