The Guilford County Board of Education approved four new policies following a 30-day public comment period.
The policies are:
2125/7315 – Confidential Information – This policy reiterates the importance of employees and board members maintaining confidentiality as required by law. It outlines steps to be taken if one needs to clarify whether something is confidential.
4000 – Focus on Students – “Policy 4000 – Focus on Students” recognizes that providing students with the opportunity to receive a sound basic education is the primary goal of each school, the district and the board.
7273 – Domestic and Workplace Violence – “Policy 7273 – Domestic and Workplace Violence” encourages employees to make their supervisors aware in a timely manner of when a civil no-contact or domestic violence order has been issued. Supervisors will take reasonable efforts to maintain the confidentiality of the information.
No public comments were received on any of the policies.
GCS is working with the North Carolina School Boards Association to review and update all policies.
