Description:  This time is being set aside to open a dialogue between the governing bodies of the community; school, city, and county.  This dialogue is meant to be an open discussion on ways in which the entities can work together to best serve our community.
2.2. Board Policy Revisions
Discussion:  This is the initial reading of board policies that have recommended changes. There are ten (10) policies which have revisions to reflect either statutory requirements enacted by the Minnesota legislature in the 2021 legislative session and other state or federal requirements. This month five of these policies will be reviewed.  The changes are summarized in the support materials. The following policies have changes:
#102 - Equal Educational Opportunity
#406 - Public and Private Personnel Data
#503 - Student Attendance
#515 - Protection and Privacy of Pupil Records
#534 - Unpaid Meal Charges (now "School Meals Policy")
3.1. Resolution for the Approval of the MRVED Flexible Learning Year Application:
3.2. Support an MSBA legislative resolution to increase flexibility for school boards and districts to determine how, where, when, and at what pace students learn while ensuring that students still meet MN State Academic Standards and accountability requirements.
Discussion:  This action would add Montevideo Public Schools to the list of schools supporting this resolution.  This resolution is in direct support of the foundation in which the district innovation zone application was made upon.

This action is recommended by Superintendent McKittrick
