Draft Minutes

Policy Committee 9-29-2015

Meeting called to order at 4:45 pm

In attendance: Joe Collea, High school principal; Charlie Reibel, HACTC assistant director,; Sheila Powers, WRS principal; Peter Merrill, School Board; Tom DeBalsi, superintendent

Sheila Powers reviewed the current policies relating to Harassment, Bullying and Hazing. She also reviewed the new model policy the state has provided for Hazing, Harassment and Bullying of Students. Discussion of the employee policy on harassment also took place. The conclusion was the student and employee policies dealing with harassment have to contend with different issues and procedures however, where possible, should contain similar language especially regarding definitions of harassment and similarity in responses and procedures to allegations.

Tom will put the draft policy into the Hartford Format and share with the members for the next meeting.

 

The next meeting of the Policy Committee is October 13, 2015 at 4:45 at the SOS.
