Board of Education President Tim Turner called the meeting to reserve following The Pledge of the Allegiance. Tucker County High School Principal Stephen Cosner turned into the present to replace the board on their newly derived cell phone policy, partly formulated by the Student Council and the group of workers. The students will be authorized to apply their cell telephones between class and at lunch, and study room policies might be determined with the aid of every instructor. Students who select no longer to abide by the brand new policy can be mentioned the office, and it will be handled as both insubordination or misuse of generation.
“The interesting part turned into seeing the youngsters work on this and seeing it surely wasn’t smooth and created something due to the fact anybody has an opinion,” stated Cosner. After reviewing their scholar manual, he also mentioned that he would love to broaden a committee including teachers, college students, and parents to make essential revisions because of updates and clarifications wanted since the closing guide.
Board member Cathy Hebb is puzzled if this new coverage has been installed writing. Cosner stated it is not, however, that it could be performed and included inside the student manual revisions. Still, the repercussions of insubordination and misuse of the era are in writing and understanding.
“The mobile telephones aren’t the most effective issue; there are numerous grey regions,” he stated in referring to the guide. Superintendent Alicia Lambert requested if the lecturers have been similarly managing their study room protocol. He said they, too, had a tough time reaching a consensus and are adopting unique cellular smartphone guidelines consistent with the lecture room.
Lambert expressed problem, “For students I recognize quite a few instances if the expectations aren’t the identical throughout the board, what they could escape within a single room they couldn’t get away with in another room, and then they don’t apprehend why this instructor didn’t punish them for it however this one did.” Cosner agreed and felt the revisions to the manual might deal with this. Cosner again agreed. However, he wishes to be extra consistent and more work on the coverage itself.
“As a main, I even have a hassle dictating classroom policies to instructors,” Cosner said. Jessica Wamsley brought, “If you’re going to give the teachers the ability to write down their very own guidelines, as a team of workers you want to provide you with a set of non-negotiables, the matters we will not budge on”. Turner stated, “I guess my concern is if there’s no faculty policy.
Then you definitely pronouncing it’s a study room coverage by using teacher, then you definitely get substitutes in that work in a couple of positions, and that’s just absolutely puzzling”. The board as a whole requested a copy of the handbook be provided to them whilst the revisions have been made for their evaluation and input. Tucker Valley Elementary Middle School Principal Teresa Brusak stepped forth. She asked a duplicate as properly announcing it’d help them to imitate the TCHS manual to assist put together students for the high school as nicely.
