A resident's criticism has led the school board to discuss whether it's properly documenting what happens at its meetings.
The San Ramon Valley Unified School District Board of Education is responding to a concern raised last meeting by resident Dan Boatwright, who argued that recent meeting minutes included only cursory and inadequate synopses of citizens' oral comments.
In a public debate set for Tuesday (Jan. 28) night, board members are set to clarify how they want content from their meetings to be recorded in official minutes.
In other business during its regular meeting, the board will discuss changing policies in order to add e-cigarettes, e-hookahs and other similar products to the list of items prohibited on district property, at school-sponsored events and in students' possession.
Board members will also consider recommended updates to policies pertaining to affirmative action, non-discrimination during SRVUSD activities, and employee recruitment and selection. Those topics, as well as the tobacco-related policies, are set as discussion-only items, with official action to come at a future meeting.
Following up on its Jan. 14 meeting, the board will weigh final approval for policy revisions applying to personnel concepts and roles, employees' oath or affirmation of allegiance, child-abuse reporting and the comprehensive local plan for special education.
A SRVUSD consultant will present an overview of the district's 2012-13 independent financial audit.
The board will also receive reports regarding Gov. Jerry Brown's 2014-15 state budget proposal, the district's safety committee and Twin Creeks Elementary School in San Ramon.
The open-session meeting is scheduled to start at 7 p.m. inside the board chambers at 699 Old Orchard Drive in Danville.
