According to chairperson Ron Ayuyu, his committee will be going over the policy, which was drafted in 1974. He says it's been so long since it has been updated and the board needs to work on it, especially with the enforcement of the Every Child is Entitled to An Adequate Public Education Act.

"Things have changed," he detailed.  "The policy was in 1974; we need to look at it because the year and the facility and the no child left behind and the 14 points, so we got to really look at that to see what language we need to change to update our policy on facilities and maintenance."

Ayuyu says he will be calling for a work session to take a look at the language and see whether doe can make changes or adoptions on the policy. There's been no word provided on when that work session will take place.
