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.
The Policy Committee convened Thursday, Feb. 20 with co-chairs Julie Haywood and Dan Schultz, committee members Joel Fishbein and Tyrone Smith, Superintendent Dr. Wagner Marseille, administrators and solicitor in attendance.
