Superintendent Richard P. McAdams and members of the Parent-Teacher Organization devised the guidelines in a meeting Sept. 18. At the work session, McAdams explained the guidelines and the way parents would be informed of them.
If passed, the guidelines would require parents to make a written request for bus service by Aug. 1. The requests would be submitted to the district's transportation supervisor. Requests turned in after that date would not be processed until two weeks after the start of the school year, about Sept. 15.
In other business, the board also received copies of the Student Activity Fund Manual, which was researched over the last two years by business manager Edward E. Mulroy.
"This is to better organize the activity funds, to set policy, rules, . . . regulations and forms for our people to follow," Mulroy said.
"The auditor general is coming down hard in school districts in the Commonwealth on this," Mulroy said.
The manual, required under the state Public School Code, details proper documentation and accounting of student activity funds. Money from student organizations, extra-curricular activities and sports clubs would be better documented under the new manual.
He said the creation of the manual did not reflect any problem in the district.
"This means more work for some people - faculty advisors and numerous principals - but it's necessary," Mulroy said.
The manual also is expected to be voted on at Monday's meeting.
