This is the First Reading on changes to Policy GBKA, "Appeals to the Board of Education by Employees". The recommended changes are a technical revision to language and dates requested by the Office of General Counsel. Additionally, the Policy Committee recommends a change requiring three (3) members of the Board of Education to be present at all Employee Appeal panels in order to have a quorum. Current policy invites three (3) members of the Board for each panel, but only requires two (2) to be present in order to have a quorum. This change was considered by the CMS Policy Committee on Oct. 12th and was recommended for approval by the full Board by a 4-0 vote.
