Trigg County School Superintendent Travis Hamby took a little more than 10 minutes to go over the changes, almost all of which were seen by the board at the first reading at their previous meeting. Hamby says that most of the changes involve minor adjustments to existing policies.
“There’s nothing major in the changes. Everything is either legal or clarifying language or the result of a statute that was put in place, and we’re trying to comply wit that,” said Hamby.
The board voted to delete a provision in the policy (05.3) that forbids non-school-related dances on school property. Hamby suggested this at the first reading of the policy changes. Prior to that meeting, the board had discovered the policy when the Trigg County Sheriff’s Office wanted to hold a fund-raising dance for a drug dog at the Trigg County Elementary Gymnasium.
On page 83 of the of the policy book, there is a policy that Hamby says deals with notifying parents of concussions and the dangers of getting a concussion.
