School board passes several policies

-A A +A
By Carol A. Clark

A number of policies were unanimously passed at Tuesday’s school board meeting.

Policiy1340 – School Building Names allows local schools to be given names compatible with and reflective of the environment and culture of New Mexico. Individual school buildings should have descriptive titles, and the change to this policy approved Tuesday is that it may now include the name of a person who is presently living or is deceased.

The person must be or have been someone directly or personally involved with the individual school or considered worthy of recognition by the students and community.

Policy 3250 – Fees Materials allows the superintendent to set appropriate fees for materials used by students in Los Alamos Public Schools courses.

Policy 3326 – Bills states that it shall be the responsibility of the school board to ratify or disapprove the superintendent’s payment of the bills of the school system, through cash disbursements. The superintendent is authorized to approve these cash disbursements prior to a board meeting.

The superintendent may utilize an electronic signature system in paying these bills. However, the bills shall be presented to the board within one month, at a regular meeting for formal action and entry into the minutes.
