Collier County School Board members on Tuesday approved a slew of new and revised policies, including ones that allow advertising on district property and transfer of sick leave between employees.
Board members went over the 13 changes during a workshop last month, and approved them unanimously and with little discussion at their Tuesday meeting.
Changes made under the new and revised policies include:
allowing advertising on district vehicles, the Education Channel, yearbooks and other district property — but not school buses — as a new source of funding
allowing employees to transfer accrued sick leave days to employees who have exhausted all of their own sick leave time
requiring coaches to remove students suspected of having a head injury from games and practices until they receive written clearance from a licensed medical provider
lowering the maximum age for participation in the regular high school program from 21 to 19.
