McKinney ISD board members heard an update on the MISD stadium and event center and also amended a portion of the student code of conduct during Tuesday's board of trustees meeting.

1. MISD stadium and community event center update

As of Oct. 17, the lower interior bowl of the MISD stadium is complete with the exception of the two band sections, according to a presentation given at tonight's meeting.

Although the event center is expected to be substantially complete in January, events will not be held until late March, according to the presentation.

2. Amendment to student code of conduct

The board of trustees approved additional language to the code of conduct related to removing someone from school property or an event.

The district has always been able to remove someone if they pose a substantial risk of harm to anyone or behaves inappropriately for a school setting, but the new language requires a verbal warning to the student, participant or attendee. If the behavior continues, the district may "bar the person from entry, or order removal" and provide the person with written information explaining the appeal process at the time of removal, according to district documents.
