At two School District of Independence Board Meetings during the month of October, the board considered options to provide MS/HS families District sponsored insurance. There were questions regarding appropriate premiums, deductibles, parent demand, personal homeowners’ coverage, and administration of an insurance program. As a result, the District has taken no action. At this time the District’s Digital Learning Initiative and Responsible Use policies will remain in effect. The District will also continue its schedule to allow students to take computers home. This topic is still open for discussion and as more information is gathered a policy may s be implemented later in the year or next school year. Please contact the school administration if you have comments or concerns.
