School board member says ‘very important topic’ deserves more deliberation; panel OKs labor pact
The Benicia Unified School District Governing Board elected last week to table Board Policy BP5141.52, the official district policy on suicide prevention, until it could be brought back for further discussion.
The policy had been on the board’s consent calendar, which means that it could have been approved in one motion, and without discussion, along with other items. However, trustees, staff or a member of the public can request an item be pulled from the calendar for further discussion, and that’s what Trustee Peter Morgan did Thursday.
