In other business, the board also approved a first reading of a new nondiscrimination policy. To comply with state accreditation rules, the policy will add "pregnancy" and "student marital status" to the list shielded from discrimination.
The current policy says the school in dealing with staff, students and the public will not discriminate based on race, gender, religion, national background, handicap and other human differences.
The board earlier this month had anticipated "other human differences" would be replaced with sexual orientation, but administrators did not propose the change at Thursday's meeting.
Other human differences? What, do they have the local homophobe advising them on their policy?
