This is a continuation of last week's report of the October 12 Council School Board meeting.

At almost an hour into the meeting, Unfinished Business came up on the agenda, and the first item was the district's policy concerning parental rights.

The first reading of the rewritten parental rights policy was scheduled for this October 12 meeting.
