The Olathe Board of Education public comment portion of its meeting will return to its former format. That means the community engagement portion of the meeting will happen as part of the regular business meeting again with a live stream and video archive. 

The revision of the policy, though not supported by all school board members, passed 5-2, with members Julie Steele and Joe Beveridge voting against it during the school board meeting on Thursday. Board vice president Brad Boyd also expressed hesitation with the proposed policy reversion, but he ultimately joined the ‘yes’ voters in the majority.
