BOE to discuss policy revisions in special meeting

July 24, 2018

HUNTINGTON- The Cabell County Board of Education will meet in special session Tuesday night, July 24, to discuss and possibly vote on policy updates and personnel matters. The meeting will begin at 6 p.m. at the district’s central office at 2850 5th Ave. in Huntington.

Eleven revisions to district policy are up for a vote, according to the board’s public agenda. Revisions are listed to grading, graduation requirements, procurement of federal grants, overtime, technology privacy, guidance and counseling, conflicts of interest, the school calendar, program of study for limited English proficient students, pre-school programs, student privacy and student records.

Attempts to reach the central office Monday for fuller details on the revisions were not successful. Monday will be the first reading of all 11 policy revisions, meaning a positive board vote could only pass it to a second reading at a future meeting, where it could potentially be passed.

The board will additionally conduct regular student disciplinary hearings, though those proceedings happen privately in executive session to protect student confidentiality.

The board regularly meets each first and third Tuesday at 5:30 p.m. at the central office in Huntington. The next regularly scheduled meeting will be Aug. 7.

Meetings are always open to the public.
