Basehor During Monday's meeting, the Basehor-Linwood School Board came up with several methods for keeping the lines of communication open with district patrons, parents and students.
Supt. Edwin Sink said the board decided to establish a parent advisory council. He currently is selecting parents to serve on the committee, which will meet once a month to discuss school-related issues and will then report their findings to the board. The first meeting is scheduled for 7:30 p.m. Sept. 24.
To better address student concerns, the board agreed to form another council, made up of 16 high school students, the high school principal, vice principal and the superintendent. The group will hold its first meeting over lunch Sept. 27.
The board also decided to hold a monthly "Meet the Superintendent Night." Sink will be available to talk with any interested patrons from 6:30 p.m. to 8:30 p.m. Sept. 26.
In other business at Monday's meeting, the board:
Discussed reviewing the policy for accepting out-of-district students. Sink will study the policy and recommend changes to the board.
Asked Sink to look at options for addressing both immediate and long-range facility concerns. No date was set to review the options.
Agreed to advertise for a technical maintenance worker to oversee the electrical, plumbing, heating and air conditioning systems in the schools.
