Five proposals are submitted to the WVBE by the WVSSAC for consideration: 1) to limit the school of choice to one school in districts that have two schools in the same district; 2) editorial change to correct citation; 3) to bring award procedures in line with surrounding states and to allow students to receive small token of appreciation without affecting their amateur status; 4) some middle school programs are experiencing higher participation numbers and have started playing JV games to get younger student athletes playing experience. This will help to ensure that those schools that need to run a JV program to get student athletes game experience that they might not otherwise; and, 5) to further promote the participation of girls in the sport of golf in West Virginia. No comments were received during the comment period for Series 2 and Series 3. Series 3, section 24.4, has been amended, per the request for the WVBE, for clarity.

Policy 2419, Regulations for the Education of Students with Exceptionalities - (Action)

Attachment W-1

Attachment W-2

 

 

 

Lou Maynus

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

The purpose of the board item is to request that Policy 2419 be approved. Policy 2419 establishes the regulations for compliance with the federal Individuals with Disabilities Education Improvement Act of 2004 (IDEA 2004) and West Virginia Code, Chapter 18, Article 20 regarding provision of service to students with exceptionalities. The policy is formatted to include the West Virginia Procedures Manual for the Education of Students with Exceptionalities. Policy 2419 is being revised to address state code requirements, IDEA, ESSA, clarifications of existing policy, WVBE and department initiatives. At the conclusion of a 60 day public comment period and 3 public hearings which were attended by 41 people, 185 comments were received from 73 people, and revisions are warranted. The policy was amended to reflect editorial changes and respond to commenters' suggested additions. The warranted revisions do not impact the intent of Policy 2419.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

The WVDE recommends that Policy 2419 be approved.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Motion(s) may be considered regarding Policy 2419.

Policy 2315, Comprehensive School Counseling Program - (Action)

Attachment X

 

 

 

Michele Blatt

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

A consolidated set of standards (from Policy 2315, Comprehensive School Counseling Program and 4373, Expected Behaviors in Safe and Supportive Schools, and 2520.19: 6-8 21st Century Advisor-Advisee Programs) are now housed in 2520.19 which has been renamed: West Virginia College- And Career-Readiness Dispositions And Standards For Student Success. Policy 2315 revisions include removing the WV Student Success Standards from Policy 2315 and instead incorporating them by reference to Policy 2520.19. By merging the three sets of standards into one policy, the expectation is that staff can more easily understand how all these standards fit together and connect to student learning, resulting in more consistent delivery of the standards to students and contributing to the holistic development and success of all students.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

The WVDE recommends that Policy 2315 be approved.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Motion(s) may be considered regarding Policy 2315.

Policy 4110, Attendance - (Action)

Attachment Y

 

 

 

Michele Blatt

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

This revision will align Policy 4110 with state law due to the passage of HB 2702. The three day letter for unexcused absences will now be optional. A time frame will be set to submit documentation relating to school absences - three days after the return to school. There will be an update to illness in the family as it pertains to an excused absence. Extra-curricular activities will be added to the list of excused absences. Attendance directors will now have flexibility in deciding to file complaint in the case of ten unexcused absences. Five day conferences will be required to be held with the "principal, administrative head, or other chief administrator of the school." "School-approved or county approved curricular or extra-curricular activities" will be added to the list of excused absences. Out-of- school suspensions for Level 1-3 offenses will be removed from the allowable deductions. Districts will post local attendance policies to their website. The revisions will require students and parents to provide documentation related to absences within a reasonable time to encourage student attendance. This revision also gives attendance directors discretion on a case-by-case basis to make a complaint within magistrate court.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

The WVDE recommends that Policy 4110 be placed on public comment for 30 days.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Motion(s) may be considered regarding Policy 4110.

Policy 4373, Expected Behavior in Safe and Supportive Schools - (Action)

Attachment Z

 

 

 

Michele Blatt

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

The School and Community Social Skills have been removed from this policy and embedded into the 2520 series as part of the academic standards to further emphasize the importance of these skills in increasing academic achievement. Changes were also necessary due to the passage of legislation. West Virginia Code 18-2C-2, 18-2C-3, and 49-2-803d-e change the requirements for training employees and reporting child abuse and neglect. West Virginia Code 61-7-11a was amended in relation to the possession of deadly weapons on premises of educational facilities and events.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

The WVDE recommends that Policy 4373 be placed on public comment for 30 days.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Motion(s) may be considered regarding Policy 4373.

Attachment BB

 

 

 

Michele Blatt

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Policy 5202 establishes the requirements regarding licensure of educators to work in the public schools of West Virginia and is critical to the success of all students in the 21st century. As changes occur in education, certification and licensure policy must be revised to meet the current needs of WV's education system. Policy 5202 has been updated to reflect these changes. These revisions to Policy 5202 assure appropriate certification of educators for licensure to work in the public schools of West Virginia in order to meet the needs of all students as part of the cycle of continuous improvement.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

The WVDE recommends that Policy 5202 be placed on public comment for 30 days.
