10.    UNFINISHED BUSINESS

a.      For Second Reading and Adoption Policy #3141 – Nonresident Students, tabled from last meeting.  WSSDA has updated Policy #3141, Nonresident Students, to align more closely with RCW 28A.225.225, the statute controlling applications for enrollment from nonresident students, students receiving home-based instruction and children of school employees.

Struck from the former policy were two standards for determining acceptance: 1) whether the student’s attendance in the district is likely to create a risk to the health or safety of students or staff; and 2) whether the district has already accepted as many nonresident students for the school year as permitted by this policy. The former was so vague that it seemed to fall short of the “rational, fair and equitable,” standard articulated in statute. It also seemed redundant in light of another standard, that being whether the student’s disciplinary records or other documentation indicated a history of violent or disruptive behavior. The latter referred back to the arbitrary “cap” addressed earlier. Page 5, Policy & Legal News, October 2015

Classified Essential.  Dr. Anne Renker, Assistant Superintendent of Teaching & Learning

b.      At First Reading Policy #2421 – Promotion/Retention, tabled from last meeting.  Content from the current policy was moved into the procedure.  Reference to NEW Policy #2107 – Comprehensive Early Literacy Plan was added and the Management Resource updated.  Classified Discretionary.  Dr. Ann Renker, Assistant Superintendent of Teaching & Learning

c.      Introduction to Policy #2107 – Comprehensive Early Literacy Plan.
