A. Policy 5630.01 - Student Seclusion and Restraint (Replacement Policy)
Policy 5630.01 - Seclusion and Restraint was not yet ready for a first reading last month as it was still under review by our special education team. This policy is a partner to 5610 - Emergency Removal, Suspension, and Expulsion of Nondisabled Students, and 5610.01 - Expulsions / Suspension. ZPS has already been following this policy since December 2016 and is being accepted as written by NEOLA.
B. Construction Update Lynn VanKampen
Lynn VanKampen gave an update on all projects. Several began after school let out for summer as it was easier to complete without students around (pathway, parking lots). Timing and budget is on track for all other projects. Budgets for 2018 projects for Cityside and ZW are looking on track as well, with potential for bids to go out in August and November respectively.
A. POLICY APPROVAL
Tom DenHerder moved and Mark Snyder supported the motion to approve the updated policies as discussed during the June 19, 2017 regular board meeting.
