School Board Tables Vote at June 8 Board Meeting

The Kent School District Board of Directors voted to table discussion on the motion to reject the Instructional Materials Committee’s decision to remove the book “Jack of Hearts (and Other Parts)” by Lev A.C. Rosen from Cedar Heights Middle School during the June 8 regular board meeting.  Due to an internet connectivity issue, all five board members were unable to participate in the discussion. It was decided the continuation of discussion and a vote would be more appropriate at a time when all board members may participate. The board will discuss the motion that was tabled and then vote on the motion. There will be no additional public comments or additional documents accepted addressing this motion. The item will be added to a future board agenda and posted to BoardDocs on our website.
