BOE refreshens policies

JONESBORO — The Clayton County Board of Education took action on two policies during its meeting Monday.

There was unanimous 6-0 approval of the board oversight of management policy. Alieka Anderson arrived after the vote, and Michael King and Vice Chairwoman Mary Baker were absent.

Policy series B on school board operations was approved 6-1 with Jessie Goree dissenting. Anderson had arrived by this time and cast the sixth ‘yes’ vote.

Most changes to the B-series policies were grammatical. However, one amendment incorporated employee policies on acceptable Internet use and electronic communications and directs board members to abide by them. The changes also strike redundant language governing public participation at meetings.

King joined the board for its work session that followed the 6 p.m. meeting. It began at 7:15 p.m.

Policy series D on fiscal management and series E on business management received a second reading during the work session. There were no changes to series D but there were grammatical changes to series E.

There was a first reading of the board’s facility expansion program policy series F and its general public relations policy series K. There were no amendments to series F. Series K included a new section restricting certain advertising while prohibiting some the forms of advertisement on or with board property.
