Policy 1.407 School District Records - Adoption
Rationale: 

Updated to include phone and email as a way to request records.

Bold + underlined = addition

 

This policy has been updated in response to Public Chapter 233, which expands the ways citizens may submit open records requests and allows LEAs to deny requests based on the citizen's failure to comply with the policy. It is important to note that Tennessee citizens may now request to view public records by phone, fax, U.S. mail, and email. Requests may also be submitted via eletronic portal if the district maintains one for this purpose.

Policy 2.703 Audits - Review on 1st Reading
Rationale: 

Bold and underlined = Addition

Public Chapter 383 requires that LEAs with findings in their annual audit submit a corrective action plan to the comptroller of the treasury. This plan must include the name(s) of the contact person responsible for the corrective action, the action taken or planned, and the anticipated completion date. We have updated policy 2.703 to reflect these new requirements. 


Attachments:
Policy 3.202 Emergency Preparedness Plan - Review on 1st Reading
Rationale: 

Bold and underlined = Addition

 

This policy has been updated to include a new requirement, per Public Chapter 313, that each school safety team conduct at least one armed intruder drill per year in coordination with local law enforcement. In addition, this updated policy reflects Public Chapter 451's requirement that all schools conduct full evacuation fire drills at least one time every 30 school days, with two fire drills occurring during the first 30 full days of the school year. Each school will also be required to perform four fire safety educational announcements during the school year. LEAs have complete discretion over every aspect of the fire safety educational announcements. The distribution and content of these announcements is at the discretion of the LEA.


Attachments:
Policy 4.210 Credit Recovery - Adoption on 1st Reading
Rationale:  This policy has been updated in response to a change in State Board Policy 2.103. Students that pass credit recovery courses are now required to receive a grade of 70%. Previously, credit recovery grades could factor in the original failing grade in the calculation of the credit recovery grade. This is no longer permitted. Additionally, this policy only applies to LEAs with high schools.
Attachments:
Policy 4.301 Interscholastic Athletics - Review on 1st Reading
Rationale: 

Bold and underlined = Addition

 

Public Chapter 260 requires that students be excused from participating in a school athletic event, or related event, if the event is on an official school holiday, observed day of worship, or religious holiday. We have updated policy 4.301 to reflect this.
