School Board of Clay County
June 30, 2022 - Regular School Board Meeting
D1 - Adopt Superintendent’s Memorandum in Support of Declaration of Emergency and Approve the emergency adoption and implementation of amendments to the Manual of Procedures for Media Services and The Handbook of Instructional Materials Procedures as contained in School Board Policies 4.44C and 4.45F respectively

The Florida legislature, on March 8, 2022, passed House Bill 1467, which bill was approved by the Governor on March 25, 2022 and was filed with the Secretary of State on March 25, 2022 as Laws of Florida Ch. 2022-21. Said bill added requirements for each school board throughout the State of Florida to amend policies and procedures to further define training for school district media personnel, the review and approval of all publications maintained in the district’s school media centers, inclusion of the public generally and parents of district students specifically in the review and approval of said publications, and increase the public participation in, the transparency of selection of and the website availability of all instructional materials intended to be used by the school district prior to purchase of said materials while noting the objections to specific materials and listing those which have been removed or discontinued The requirements of this legislation take effect on July 1, 2022. The School Board Procedural Manual amendments and additions set forth herein meet the requirements of the legislation and provide for further definition and implementation by the Superintendent through the establishment of procedures promulgated through his office. The attached Procedure Manuals, were created to accomplish the legislative requirements by the set deadline. Because they meet the definition of a “Rule” they are required to be approved by the School Board prior to implementation. The Superintendent is asking that they be adopted on an emergency basis because there was insufficient time to comply with the full adoption process required by Sec. 120.54, Fla. Statutes. Florida law provides that a Rule adopted by emergency procedures shall not be effective for more than 90 days during which time the School Board may initiate and complete rulemaking to adopt a rule addressing the subject of the emergency rule if it wishes the rule to extend beyond 90 days. This process requires publication of notice of adoption and a public hearing.
