This included, onthe section regarding notifying parents corporal punishment hadbeen administered, adding language stating that attempts tonotify parents needed to be made within 24 hours, or by the endof the next school day, that a paddling had been administered.After the discussion, the board approved making clarificationchanges to the policy.


Following several recommendations from a committee made up ofschool officials along with a handful of parents and students,the most updated version of the code of conduct student handbookwas presented to the board for their consideration. Many of thechanges were cleaning up the wording of certain portions of thecode of conduct and updating certain policies based on thechanges of board policy over the past year.
