Marshfield School Board revises policy Wednesday

MARSHFIELD, WI (WSAU) -  The Marshfield School Board has approved a revised policy governing board members’ access to information about the district.

Under the revised policy, board members will now direct requests for special information, such as for newly compiled reports, directly to the relevant board committee.

The previous draft of the policy would have directed those requests to the superintendent, who would have then decided whether the request was too “substantial,” to be granted.

Concerns that the term “substantial” was too subjective and that it gave too much power to the superintendent to control the flow of information, prompted the more clearly defined language in the policy revision.
