MASSENA — The Massena Central School District Board of Education has approved the first reading of a policy governing therapy dogs after the district’s Policy Committee addressed concerns raised by board members at a previous meeting.

The policy had previously been sent back for Policy Committee review after school board members questioned some of the language. The policy had been on the agenda for approval during the April meeting but was defeated.
