ACTION ITEMS
Request from Leadership Bedford for Project Approval
Policies - New and/or Revised
Policy 4.207 - English Learners
Rationale:  This policy has been re-titled from "Limited English Proficient/Language Minority Students" and revised to align with ESSA.  Under ESSA, students for whom English is a second language are no longer referred to as ESL students.  Instead, these students are referred to as English learners or ELs.  Additionally, districts must ensure that parental notification requirements are being met and those guidelines have been added.
Policy 5.305 - Family and Medical Leave Act
Rationale: 

Due to the complex nature of the Family and Medical Leave Act, TSBA received questions from several districts regarding proper implementation, including from our system on Tennessee's law on maternity leave which is not included in the policy.  As a result of these inquiries, the policy has been totally reorganized/rewritten to clarify the implementation process.

Policy 2.601 - Fundraising Activities
Rationale: 

This policy is being re-titled from "Student Solicitations/Fundraising Activities" and re-numbered from 6.701 and placed in the Financial Management section as 2.601 if approved.

Minor wording tweaks such as changing "will" to "shall" and other general cleanups are being suggested.

A provision regarding online fundraising to address concerns that have cropped up with sites like Go Fund Me.  This policy would allow for the use of online fundraising sites under certain circumstances.
