6.E. Discussion Regarding Policy Advisories 548—551-First Reading-Non Action Item
Description:  548 – BDF – Advisory Committees – Under Arizona’s Open Meeting Law, board
subcommittees are subject to the same provisions of the as the governing board. This
includes the ability to meet in an executive session if for one of the authorized reason in
the law and all procedures have been met. This change to Policy BDF clarifies this.

549 – JK – Student Discipline - Policy language pertaining to Restraint and Seclusion in
Policy JK has been deleted and moved to Policy JLDB. Restraint and Seclusion are not
intended to be disciplinary options; therefore, a stand-alone policy allows easier access
to the provisions and limitations in statute sans the additional language offered in the
discipline documents.

550 – JLDB, JLDV-EA, EB, EC, ED – Restraint and Seclusion - Restraint and
Seclusion, subsequent to its deletion from Policy JK, has been added to the policy
manual as a distinct document code in order to eliminate the linking of these methods to
the disciplinary options covered in Policy JK, Student Discipline. The statutory
provisions of A.R.S. 15-105 are retained.

Four exhibits are added to the policy for district use in documenting the requirements
and implementation of Restraint and Seclusion.

551 – KG – Community Use of School Facilities - Policy KF is modified to add language
requiring that the School District, its Governing Board, employees, and agents shall be
named as an additional insured under the liability insurance policy during the use of the
facilities and property. This change is necessary to limit costs and expenses when named as
a defendant for an injury or damage resulting from the use of the facility.
