The Petersburg School Board is holding their monthly meeting Tuesday to consider passing a policy that restricts sex offenders on campus. The school board approved a policy in its first reading at their meeting last month and were figuring out details of how to include the auditorium and gym in the policy. The Association of Alaska School Boards is suggesting that all school districts adopt their own policy as there is none at the state level.
The school board will also consider approving a curriculum for sex education in the schools. A state law requires that the instructors and curriculum are approved every year. Principals Rick Dormer from the middle and high school and Heather Conn at the elementary school will take questions from the board about the curriculum.
School administrators will also be giving an overview of the district’s current cell phone policies at all three schools.
The school board will be recognizing long time music teacher, Matt Lenhard, for being named the Alaska Music Educator of the Year.
The school board will also discuss the evaluation process for Superintendent Erica Kludt-Painter, which is scheduled to happen in January.
The school board will also hear the monthly accounting report. There will be administrative reports from the superintendent, the principals, and the activities director.
The school board meets tonight at 6 p.m. in the middle and high school library. KFSK will broadcast the meeting live. Also, tune in to Campus Connection, a call in show with school district officials at 12:30 today just after the midday news when we’ll hear more about school district issues.
