The Lafayette Parish School Board Executive Committee will discuss Friday the board's policy on member absences at meetings. Committee member Mark Allen Babineaux says the committee will find out at tonight's regular meeting what other board members' impressions of the policy is. Another board member, Hunter Beasley, adds, "We're going to find out what direction the board wants us to take as far as what constitutes a meeting and how many absences a board member should have."
The board, Babineaux says, will take that information and check it with legal counsel to formulate any amendments to the current policy or to draft a new attendance policy. According to Babineaux, the committee's recommendation could be presented to the full board at the April 3 meeting.
