Subject: Approval of the High School, Middle School, and Elementary School Handbooks for the 2019-2020 School Year.
Vision 2022:
Policy: 2.20 - Powers and Duties of the Board of Education
Background: Annually, the Board must approve student handbooks. The current handbooks have been reviewed by administrators at all three levels. As is required by School Code, the Citizens Advisory Committee met on April 17, 2019 to review the changes recommended by the level administrators. The recommended revisions to the handbooks were also reviewed by the Senior Leadership Team and the Community Engagement Committee. Other than edits for clarification, the only substantive changes were a result of modifications to Board policies and Illinois School Code. Since the last BOE meeting, we have worked on editing and improving the readability of the handbooks.
