The start of school is less than a month away, but Chico school board still has some business to take care of before kids and teachers head back to the classroom.
Much of that business will be addressed at a special meeting Thursday.
Several items on the agenda deal with routine, annual issues such as reviewing student, employee and extracurricular handbooks and approving the student code of conduct.
Other items deal with a recently-approved cafeteria management service – changing meal prices and the purchase of a middle school kitchen steamer.
It’s also budget time, and the agenda includes a discussion of the 2014-2015 draft budget, consideration of tax rates and setting a public hearing on the proposed budget and tax rates.
The school board will also consider employee compensation policies and schedules and consider a policy change involving class ranking.
The meeting is at 7 p.m. in Room 150 at Chico Elementary School, 1120 Park Road. It is open to the public.
