(4) NEW BUSINESS:

Commissioner Flynn – Absenteeism Policy – Questioned the status of an absenteeism policy (which Mr. Kevin Deveaux, Principal of Sydney Academy is a member).  It was noted that the committee has not filed a report to date.  It was noted that students that participate in such things such as the Screaming Eagles hockey team would be effected by this initiative.  It was felt that the policy may be viewed by some as being either to lenient or not lenient enough. 

Mr. John Astephen, Director of Programs & Student Services will follow-up regarding the email which was forwarded by a concerned parent.
