K. BOARD POLICIES - FIRST READING
Speaker:
Tanya Krause
Rationale:

BP/AR 3551 - Food Service Operations/Cafeteria Plan (BP/AR revised)

Policy and regulation updated to reflect NEW FEDERAL GUIDANCE (U.S. Department of Agriculture Memorandum SP 46-2016 and SP 23-2017) which mandates any district participating in the National School Lunch and/or Breakfast Program to adopt a written policy on meal charges, including the collection of delinquent meal charge debt, no later than July 1, 2017, and to annually communicate that policy to parents/guardians. Policy and regulation also reflect NEW STATE GUIDANCE (California Department of Education Management Bulletin SNP-03-2017) which requires district policy to ensure that students with unrecovered or delinquent meal charge debt are not overtly identified, requires that debt collection efforts are consistent with specified cost principles, and establishes conditions for reclassifying unpaid debt as bad debt. Policy also revised to reflect the Buy American provision of federal regulations which requires districts, to the maximum extent practicable, to purchase domestically grown and processed foods.

BP 6142.93 - Science Instruction (BP revised)

Policy updated to reflect the NEW CURRICULUM FRAMEWORK for science instruction adopted by the State Board of Education in November 2016 and the Next Generation Science Standards. Policy also adds new material related to the required course of study, science courses required for high school graduation, staff development, program evaluation, and safety in science laboratories.
