Valley issues top school board agenda
Douglas High School has had a deputy at the school full time for several years now. That position has been covered by a federal grant which expires Sept. 30.
The school district has proposed to take over the funding for the school resource officer. That contract will be discussed at Wednesday’s school board meeting scheduled for 3:30 p.m. at Kingsbury Middle School in Zephyr Cove.
If approved as proposed, the contract will run through Sept. 30, 2005. If the current resource officer resigns, the school board has the right to have two district members sit on an interview board.
In other business at the meeting, board members will:
n Discuss filing an injunction against state legislation recently passed that requires school districts to pay health insurance premiums for retired employees that opt to use the state health insurance upon retirement.
n Be given a summary of the summer school program, including classes offered, student attendance and staff preparation.
n Discuss a regulation regarding cell phones, pagers and other electronic devices. The proposed regulation does not allow students to use electronic devices during the school day.
n Hear Superintendent John Soderman talk about goals for the school year.
