CHENEY – School board members held a first reading of revisions to policies addressing student discipline and the enrollment rights and services for homeless students at its Jan. 22 meeting last Wednesday.
Associate Superintendent Tom Arlt told the board the district elected to make changes to the student discipline policy in conjunction with best practices and recommendations from their legal counsel, Stevens and Clay, rather than adopt changes proposed by the Washington State School Directors Association. Arlt added those changes, advanced two years ago, were rather “drastic.”
