REVISED

 

Approve Policy 6000.1 - Student Progression Plan for final adoption for the 2017-2018 school year.

 

The District Policy 6000.1 Committee convened throughout the school year to address issues and formulate proposed changes for the 2017-2018 school year.  A broad representation of district and school-based staff, parents, and advisories participated in the committee. The policy also incorporates legislative changes, effective July 1, 2017.

 

Changes and rationale are reflected within the "strikethrough" version of the policy.

 

The revisions were discussed at the February 28, 2017 and June 20, 2017 School Board Workshops. This policy was advertised on July 10, 2017.

 

Compliance with the proposed Policy/Rule is not estimated to result in any economic impact upon persons affected by the Policy/Rule. The update of the Policy/Rule to effect compliance with changes in state law requires significant, in-kind expenditures of human resources that are at least valued at an estimated $100,000, annually.
