ENID, Okla. — The Enid Public Schools Board of Education will focus on matters of district policy when they meet at 6 tonight at the central office.

Several policies will be brought to the table for revisions. These include policies on district educational philosophy; powers of the board of education; nepotism; development opportunities for board members; board treasurer; and travel expense reimbursements.

The board also will contemplate deleting several policies altogether. Policies on the agenda to be deleted include operational goals; school board membership; board of education attorney; consultants; advisory committees; news media coverage; board minutes; administrative goals and employment of superintendent.

In other matters, the board will consider a number of routine fund transfers; contemplate declaring numerous pieces of old equipment, computers, musical instruments, furniture and library books as surplus property; and make decisions on several fundraising requests.

The meeting will include an executive session for the purpose of approving personnel transactions.
