K. BOARD POLICIES - FIRST READING
Rationale:

BP/AR 0000 – Vision (BP revised; AR deleted) Policy updated to address data sources for vision setting, set expectations that the district's vision will drive all board decisions and district operations, and align the process of reviewing the district's vision with the process for reviewing and updating the local control and accountability plan (LCAP). Regulation deleted and key concepts incorporated into the BP.

BP 0100 – Philosophy (BP revised) Policy updated to strongly encourage boards to engage in thoughtful discussions and develop their own statements of district philosophy. Sample statements expanded to add items related to nondiscrimination, the influence of teachers and educational support staff on student achievement, the importance of professional development for staff and the board, the board's responsibility to engage in advocacy, and the link between financial stability and attainment of district goals.

BP/AR 1113 - District and School Web Sites (BP/AR revised) Policy updated to (1) clarify the district's responsibility to make district and school web sites accessible to individuals with disabilities; (2) reflect laws prohibiting web site operators from using web site information to amass a profile about a student, engage in targeted advertising to students, or sell or disclose a student's information, including NEW LAW (AB 2799, 2016) which prohibits such activities for web sites used primarily for preschool and prekindergarten purposes; and (3) clarify options related to posting student photographs on district and school web sites together with their names. Regulation updated to (1) add section on "Design Standards," including standards for web site accessibility to individuals with disabilities; (2) reflect NEW LAW (AB 2257, 2016) which requires posting a prominent, direct link to the current board meeting agenda or to an integrated agenda management platform, effective January 1, 2019; and (3) clarify requirements related to posting copyrighted material.

BP 4119.21/4219.21/4319.21 - Professional Standards (BP revised) Policy updated to reflect NEW LAW (AB 500) which requires any district that has an employee code of conduct addressing employee interactions with students to post that section of its code of conduct on each school's web site (or on the district web site if a school does not maintain one) and to provide it to parents/guardians at the beginning of the school year.

BP/AR 6020 - Parent Involvement  (BP/AR revised) Policy and regulation updated to reflect requirements for parent involvement in schools receiving federal Title I, Part A funding, as amended by the Every Student Succeeds Act, including expanding activities to include engagement of family members. Policy also reflects parent involvement as a state priority that must be addressed in the district's LCAP. 

BP 6146.1 - High School Graduation Requirements (BP revised) Policy updated to reflect NEW LAW (AB 830) which repeals the requirement to pass the high school exit exam as a condition of graduation and NEW LAW (AB 365) which exempts children of military families from locally established graduation requirements under certain conditions.

BP/AR 6178.1 - Work-Based Learning (BP/AR revised) Policy updated to add material formerly in AR regarding board approval of any district plan for work-based learning and board approval to pay students' wages out of district funds. Regulation updated to reflect NEW LAW (AB 2063, 2016) which authorizes the district to grant credit for satisfactory completion of a work experience education program to students ages 14-15 when the principal certifies that such credit is necessary for the student's participation in a career technical education (CTE) program. Regulation also reflects provision of AB 2063 which allows students to participate in job shadowing activities for up to 40 hours per semester, intersession, or summer school session if the principal certifies that it is necessary for participation in a CTE program.
