Discussion Items
7.01 Second Reading of Policy 401.1
A policy booster was released from ISFIS a couple of weeks ago with some recommended changes to the Equal Employment Opportunity Policy. In our case that is policy 401.1. They use the word “gender” and we use the word “sex” for one of the protected classes. Dr. Schweer is recommending that we use the word “gender”. They are also recommending some language changes associated with recruiting.

7.02 Open Enrollment Out for 2017-2018
A resident student (currently 7th grader) who has been open enrolled to Treynor wishes to open enroll to the CAM (Iowa Connections Academy) for the remainder of this school year. Dr. Schweer received an email from CAM indicating that they will not bill us for 17‐18 school year.
