Mr. Durant asks if the staff is aware of what is being asked.

Mr. Larry clarified just asking for input.

Mr. Durant indicates his question was voting yes/no vote for amending the backpack policy could be 1 day week/ 3 days a week.
Mr. Larry answered any change is an amendment and goes on to further explain the situation about a potential weapon. I do not know if it changes someone’s position.
Sannye Jones clarified the email sent to teachers and stated she did not realize “the no backpack policy” was not a school board policy.
Mr. Larry safety is a big issue but these students are lugging books—it is an issue that needs to be address.
Mrs. Schmidt expresses she is okay with the no backpack policy. She understands might not be a reality but for her it is a hidden safety net. She explained her sons’ textbooks are kept at home.
Mrs. Seabrook indicated the science textbook is completely available for students to access online.
Mr. DeLibro explained his career field and his daughters list of daily books. He previously worked as an SRO; he understands school life. He is safety minded. He sees the backpack as a tool—why aren’t we giving students the tool that they need. Mr. DeLibro equates the backpack to a women’s purse. In his experience, if a student wants to bring a weapon he does not care about a backpack. His son has a backpack at elementary school.
Sannye Jones indicates students leave backpacks in their locker. There are scheduled ways to deal with the backpacks. She believes the amendment would benefit the 6th graders most.

Ms. Goudreau asks about the number of classrooms in the new building.
