Agenda Item: VII.C.

Consider/Approve Amendment to Board Policy #1.600 – Policy Development and Adoption

Background Information:

The Tennessee School Boards Association (TSBA) has recommended a change to Board Policy #1.600 – Policy Development and Adoption, and this change reflects the latest legislative action. The Board’s current policy is included for your reference. Public Chapter 883 changed the annual policy update schedule to a biennial (once every two years) schedule. The only change to the policy strikes the word “annually” and replaces with the word “biennially” on line 17.

Staff Recommendation:

I agree with the above-noted amendment to Board Policy #1.600 and recommend approval on second and final reading.
