A Superior student cannot be expelled for behavior that results from homelessness.

The Superior school board approved the change to its expulsion policy Monday night. The board approved changes to five policies and a bylaw at its regular meeting.

The changes relate to meeting notices, class discussion of controversial issues, open enrollment, search and seizure, and suspension and expulsion.

About every six months the district gets suggestions for updates from its policies and procedures firm Neola, based on court cases or new laws. The board then evaluates and votes on whether to accept the new policies and bylaws.

The board also approved a school improvement model Monday night. The Learning Focused model for school improvement is software that provides teachers with instructional strategies.

The district has used school improvement models in the past, but has never used any model this comprehensive before, said Mary Anne Korsh, director of curriculum.

In addition to the curriculum and policy items, the board approved a $42,800 contract with Inspec for engineering services to evaluate the existing condition of the roofs at Four Corners and Lake Superior elementary schools. It also approved a resolution to accept the Local Government Property Insurance Fund as the insurance carrier for district property.
