McCOOK, Nebraska -- The McCook School Board of Education will be asked to approve several school policies up for annual review, at the regular meeting Monday night, 6:30 p.m. at the Junior High conference room.
Policies the board will be asked to approve include those concerning parental involvement in school, bullying prevention and student fees.
Student fees for the 2012-13 school year is an account at the McCook School District, mandated by state law, that can be accessed by students who qualify for free or reduced lunches, to help pay for extracurricular activities. These activities include school activities or organizations which are supervised or administered by the school district, such as art club or band, that do not count toward graduation or advancement between grades and are not required by the school.
The board tabled approving the student fees policy at the July meeting, until a chart of all eligible clubs and organizations could be assessed along with it. The policy, along with eligible programs, will be presented to the board Monday for approval.
The board will also be asked Monday night to approve local substitute certificates and the 2012-13 option enrollment resolution.
Superintendent Grant Norgaard and McCook Public Schools Business Manager Rick Haney will discuss with the board accreditation and options concerning the bus barn.
