County schools update policy, student handbook

By Donald Campbell


During Monday night's meeting, the Tallapoosa County Board of Education reviewed policy changes and the latest edition of the student handbook, while also recognizing the achievements of several students and hearing from parents and their concerns.

Due to recent concerns with the board's policy on corporal punishment, the board sought to clean up some of the language and make the policy on paddling students clearer. This included, on the section regarding notifying parents corporal punishment had been administered, adding language stating that attempts to notify parents needed to be made within 24 hours, or by the end of the next school day, that a paddling had been administered. After the discussion, the board approved making clarification changes to the policy.


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