AGENDA ITEM:  #16          AGENDA TITLE: Parking lots

 

ITEM REQUESTED BY: Supt.

 

SUMMARY: On occasion the District parking lots have abandoned vehicles and/or vehicles which are “works-in-progress” of area mechanics.  The vehicles pose a safety hazard and we have limited success and cooperation from those in control of the vehicles to have them removed.  Some vehicles have been “parked” on school property for days on end.  The Lane S.O. suggests we post the property and call tow services if the owners do not remove them on request.

 

SUPERINTENDENT’S ADVICE:  Sample resolution:

 

        “Whereas overnight parking and/or storage of vehicles on school property poses as safety risk to the District and students; and

        Whereas there is no perceivable reason for the District to allow overnight parking and/or storage of vehicles on school property; and

        Whereas any overnight parking or storage should have the expressed authorization by the District Superintendent;

        It is hereby resolved that said unauthorized vehicles shall be towed at owner expense and signage shall be erected to indicate the District’s intent.”

AGENDA ITEM:  #18          AGENDA TITLE: Policy IKF-AR

 

ITEM REQUESTED BY: Board Leadership

 

SUMMARY: Policy IKF-AR lists requirements for graduation.  Section 4 of the policy limits the number of outside credits from community colleges a graduate can apply to meeting Creswell requirements.  According to the HS principal and counselor some students attending LCC or taking other approved credits via internet and/or V-tel would be jeopardized by the policy. 

 

SUPERINTENDENT’S ADVICE:   Board leadership recommends that Section 4 of Policy IKF-AR be waived for this year only for those students whom the principal and counselor agree would be unfairly penalized.  This will give he Policy Committee a chance to review Section 4 in light of evolving education patterns.
