Hayden The Hayden School Board will review several policies and take another look at the planned budget for the 2006-07 school year when its members meet tonight.
Agenda items for the 7 p.m. meeting include examining a policy about receiving credit for online courses. The goal is to take a more consistent approach with the hope of clarifying what classes also could count for college credit, Superintendent Mike Luppes said last week.
The board also is expected to conduct a final reading for an attendance policy for the high school. The new policy aims to curb truancy at the high school by specifying consequences for students who miss too class too often. Missing a class more than 10 times could result in a student not receiving credit for the class. Students could appeal whether certain absences, such as those resulting from an emergency or serious illness, would be counted against them. The board has spent the past year reviewing the policy.
The board also may pass the budget for next year. The budget process has been relatively painless compared to past years, when cuts had to be made. No significant cuts are proposed.
The board also will discuss bids for several school-improvement projects. Those projects include new clocks, sidewalks and locks.
