Annual Financial Report to be Presented at School Board Meeting

The board will also be doing a second reading of technology-driven policies

Lacey’s Board of Education will convene in the Lecture Hall of the high school for its monthly meeting at 7:30 p.m. Join Lacey Patch for live coverage.

Tonight’s agenda includes a 2011-12 Comprehensive Annual Financial Report by Frank Holman, Homan and Frenia, PC.

Following the presentation, the board will be voting to accept the financial report. The agenda states that there are no audit findings.

The board will also be doing a second reading of three technology-driven policies, including “Student Use of Privately-Owned Technology.”

The policy, which goes hand-in-hand with the district’s new Bring Your Own Device initiative, goes on to say that students are now permitted to use technology devices such as a iPad or smart phone while in school as long as they follow the provisions.

The district is also doing a second reading that, if approved, will revise two other policies: “Acceptable Use of Computer Networks/Computers and Resources” and “Use of Electronic Communication and Recording Devices.”

The “Use of Electronic Communication and Recording Devices” policy prohibits students from using audio or video recorders, including on phones, unless they’re in an emergency situation or have the permission of a school staff member with supervision.

The “Acceptable Use of Computer Networks/Computers and Resources” policy adopts standards of conduct for the use of computer networks and declares unethical, unacceptable, or illegal behavior as a just cause for taking disciplinary action.

Each of the policies is included in the November board agenda, which is attached to this story as a PDF. The Superintendent’s Report is also attached.
