DISCUSSION AND POSSIBLE ACTION: FOREIGN EXCHANGE STUDENT REQUEST
Dr. McMorran explained that very shortly before the opening of school, an appropriately qualified foreign exchange student had applied for enrollment for the 2018-19 school year with the sponsorship of an organization requiring board approval. Dr. Pin confirmed that the student’s enrollment would have no significant impact on the availability of courses to other students, or financially. There was discussion of the possible need to revise the current policy regarding foreign exchange student enrollment.

Motion: move to accept the administration’s recommendation to enroll a foreign exchange student from Germany for the school year 2018-19 per Policy 5111(c). Hancock, Williams. Approved. Unanimous.
