E. POLICY REVISION / ADOPTION
July 2012 policy revision from CSBA – Study session /1st reading / adoption requested
BP/AR 4154/4254/4354 - Health and Welfare Benefits
Updated policy and regulation delete material related to temporary premium subsidies for COBRA/Cal-COBRA for "assistance eligible individuals" who were involuntarily terminated, as the date for program eligibility has now passed. Policy also reflects the federal Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act which prohibits employers from providing higher benefits to "highly compensated" individuals, as defined. Regulation also reflects legal requirement that an eligible retiree or surviving spouse may be denied the opportunity to enroll for benefits if he/she does not do so within 30 days of losing active coverage, and reflects change of age at which person ceases to be a "dependent child" for purposes of eligibility for COBRA/Cal-COBRA. (Options 1 were originally chosen)
E 4319.21 - Professional Standards
Updated exhibit reproduces the entire California Professional Standards for Educational Leaders, as issued by the California School Leadership Academy at WestEd and the Association of California School Administrators.
BP 5131.2 – Bullying (Revised policy from April 2013 Updates)
Policy updated to ensure compliance with CDE decision that uniform complaint procedures must be used to receive and investigate student complaints involving discrimination, harassment, intimidation, and bullying based on the characteristics covered within Education Code 234.1.
BP 5141.33 - Head Lice
Updated policy reflects NEW STATE GUIDANCE from the California Department of Public Health (CDPH) on head lice prevention and control in schools. In accordance with CDPH guidance, policy (1) deletes routine screening by schools and the school's responsibility to check siblings of infected students, (2) adds provision of information to parents/guardians to encourage at-home screening and inspection, (3) allows student found with active head lice to stay in school until the end of the school day, and (4) gives discretion to principal or designee to determine whether to send notification and information to parents/guardians when students in a class or school are found infested with head lice.
AR 5144.1 - Suspension and Expulsion/Due Process
MANDATED regulation updated to reflect NEW LAW (AB 1732, 2012) which identifies specific conduct that would constitute a post on a social network Internet web site, for purposes of identifying an act of bullying, to include posting to or creating a burn page, creating a credible impersonation of a student, and creating a false profile. In addition, updated regulation clarifies that, although state law defines "bullying" to include acts of sexual harassment, hate violence, or harassment, threat, or intimidation (as described in items #20-22 in the section "Grounds for Suspension and Expulsion"), students below grade 4 may only be disciplined for such acts if all the criteria for "bullying" are met (e.g., a third grade student’s act of harassment results in harm to a reasonable student).
BP 6161 - Equipment, Books and Materials
Policy deleted due to redundancy with BP 6161.1 - Selection and Evaluation of Instructional Materials.
BB 9321 - Closed Session Purposes and Agendas
Updated bylaw reflects NEW ATTORNEY GENERAL OPINION which concludes that only three specified subjects related to real property negotiations may be considered in closed session. Bylaw also (1) includes board philosophical statement expressing commitment to transparency and compliance with open meeting laws, (2) includes requirement to reconvene in open session to report decisions of closed session with link to BB 9321.1 - Closed Session Actions and Reports, and (3) revises section on "Pending Litigation" to add definitions of "party" and "significant exposure to litigation."
