Release Date: 11/12/2009 10:03:23 AM

The Board of Education of Carroll County is seeking input on proposed changes to Board Policy JIBB – Student Representative on Board of Education.
     
The proposed changes grant the Student Representative a counted, recorded vote on certain items before the Board. Details of the policy revisions providing partial student voting rights are posted at:
The proposed revisions to the policy generally state that the vote will reflect an informed student opinion and will be counted towards the determination of action on Board policy, curriculum, publications, and other student-related items. The vote will be recorded and not counted towards decisions regarding the capital and operating budgets, bids and contracts, school closings and openings, school boundary adjustments, and student disciplinary matters. The student representative will continue to be prohibited from voting on personnel matters.
      
Please submit all comments and suggestions to feedback@carrollk12.org by Friday, December 4, 2009. This item will be returned to the Board for action at its meeting on Wednesday, December 9, 2009.
     
Please be aware that the media and Carroll County citizens have requested copies of e-mails sent to the feedback folder. Under the Public Information Act, e-mails sent to the Board are public information and will be disclosed.
