LAUREL COUNTY, Ky. —
Jones felt the contribution was “minimal” to provide complete and accurate information to the General Assembly.
“We’ve done everything that the state has asked us to do,” she said. “We are looking for the state to start stepping up to the plate.”
“We’ve got to show support (for this resolution). They’ve (legislature) let us down, big time,” agreed board member Jim Sutton.
In other matters:
The board approved all updates to the School Safety Plan. While much of the plan cannot be released to the public, Jones said all new and existing strategies will be practiced by both staff and students.
According to Principal Teresa Smith, some of the strategies include how to account for every student during real emergencies and drills. Many of the new safety strategies include the latest information about active shooter situations.
“We will continue to tweak this plan as we continue to train,” said Jones.
A copy of the revised safety plan and a school floor plan will be shared with local first responders and law enforcement. The revised plan was also sent to the Kentucky Department of Education by Nov. 1.
The board also approved all consent items including student trips, employee travel and fundraising requests.
