The Trigg County Board of Education, at its evening meeting last Thursday at the school central office, approved a number of housekeeping measures, in addition to some Kentucky School Board Association recommended policy and administrative procedure changes.

Of the 174 school districts in the state, only about three subscribe to KSBA polices, according to Trigg County School Superintendent Tim McGinnis.

A total of 36 policy amendments were accepted by the school board on first reading with a few minor changes, and 22 administrative procedures were acknowledged by the board.

However, board members decided to table a discussion on superintendent evaluation criteria that the KSBA recommended as an administrative procedure.

Other measures that were approved included the federal and Kentucky Department of Education Assurances that the school district will adhere to No Child Left Behind and other programs.

The board also paid bills and made several adjustments to the student code of conduct, including changing board member names, the inclusion of House Bill 91, also known as the Bullying Bill, and updating FERPA laws.

The board also voted to approve all fees for the schools, which went unchanged with the exception of a few high school classes as well as the extension of Trigg County Board of Education Attorney Hal Hopson’s contract for the next year.

The next school board meeting will be held at 7 p.m. on Thursday, July 23 at the school central office.
