With the beginning of the 2013-14 school year less than a week away — students at all city schools have their first day of class on Wednesday — the Benicia Unified School District Board of Trustees will meet Thursday for the first time since June.
But even as trustees convene for their first meeting after summer hiatus, all eyes will be on next week’s launch of Benicia High School’s new closed campus policy.
In a change from longstanding policy, this school year only seniors in good standing will be permitted to leave the campus during lunch. Freshmen, sophomores and juniors will all be required to stay on campus.
