12.1.2. Recommendation to approve second reading for policies 201, 202, 203.1, 534 and 902
Description:  201- Legal Status of the School Board The Powers and Duties section does not have the same verbiage in the same format. Also, the cross references would need to be updated as we are now using MSBA policies as labels instead of “Le Sueur-Henderson Public Schools Policy” where appropriate.
Recommend using the format and verbiage from the MSBA policy for the section Powers
and Duties. This would then have the whole policy match the MSBA.

202- School Board Officers The verbiage in our current policy is different for section 2A.
The verbiage in our current policy goes into more detail. as suggested by MSBA for the
section on Organization.
The verbiage of the current policy is different under Section E regarding Superintendent.
For all purposes, it still is an MSBA policy with some additions. However, with policies,
sometimes less is more. I would recommend to move to total MSBA policy.

203.1 School Board Procedures-Rules of Order Under section 3A Section, there are 3 additional points written that MSBA does not include.
Under Rules of Order, the current policy under 3 B has additional language labeled N. O. P.

I recommend to edit out the extra language. I believe that MSBA captures the intent of this policy.
12.1.3. Recommendation to approve first and final readings on policies 301, 302, 303, 304, 305 and 306
Description:  301 School District Administration- Red lines updated. 

302 Superintendent-  Red lines are already in current policy. 
The cross references would need to be updated as we are now using MSBA policies as labels instead of “Le Sueur-Henderson Public Schools Policy” where appropriate.

303 Superintendent Selection- A change was made to state that the superintendent of the chief executive officer of the school “district” instead of school “board”. 

304  Superintendent Contract, Duties, and Evaluation-  No Red lines. Policy is current with MSBA Policy.

305 Policy Implementation- No Red lines. The word order in the first sentence is different than MSBA, but it has the exact same meaning as MSBA. No changes recommended. 

306 Administrator Code of Ethics-  Policy is current with MSBA Policy.
