At Thursday night’s Trigg County Board of Education meeting, board members unanimously approved a non-resident contract with the Christian County Board of Education. In the yearlong contract, Christian County will grandfather in students who were enrolled in Trigg County schools last year, but not their siblings.
Trigg County School Superintendent said the Trigg County School District will look at accepting those students on a case-by-case basis, and that they will continue to release state funds for any Trigg County residents who want to attend Christian County Schools. He added that Christian County Schools officials have told him they will consider hardships.
“I appreciate Christian County and their board reconsidering their position on this matter. I appreciate Mr. [Trigg County Board of Education Attorney Howell] Hopson’s work with Mr. Lackey and trying to facilitate this agreement,” said Hamby. “It’s a lot better than taking this and having to appeal it … so I do appreciate their cooperation and trying to work with us and our kids.”
