Recent Changes to Policies made by Board Action

February 9, 2010

At its February 9, 2010 Regular Business meeting, the Board of Directors amended three policies. 

Policy 3323: (new name) Evaluation of Bids and Requests for Proposals
Formerly titled : Evaluation of Bids
The policy, last revised in November of 1971, was amended to remove obsolete references to positions, to reflect current practice, and to include Requests for Proposals which are more prevalent now than in the past.  Updated legal references and cross references are included. 
The Superintendent has promulgated an amended Regulation 3323 A to implement this policy.

Policy 1010: (new name) Publications and Broadcasts
Formerly titled: School Sponsored Publications, Radio and Television
The policy, last revised in January of 1980, establishes that the Superintendent may establish branding standards to be used in all publications and broadcasts sponsored by any school or district department.  It provides for the translation of official publications into the primary home languages of our students. It urges consideration of conservation of resources in production of publications and broadcasts.  Updated legal references and cross references are provided.
The Superintendent has promulgated a new Regulation 1010 A - Branding Standards to implement the policy. The Communications and Public Affairs Department is designated by the Superintendent as the department in charge of branding standards, decisions on branding, and technical assistance to schools, programs and departments in co-branding issues.  A branding standards manual has been adopted.

Policy 8210 : Meetings of the Board of Directors
This policy, adopted in August 2009, was amended to include changes made in the Minnesota Open Meeting Law with regard to recording matters considered in legally closed meetings of the Board.  It establishes when and how those recordings shall be made, classifies the recordings as non-public data, allows for the reclassification of the data under specific circumstances and establishes a minimum retention schedule for those recordings.
