Vance presented information about the mandatory Bullying Policy revisions. These revisions are due to the new law passed by the Indiana State Legislature. This policy was approved by the board and will be shared on all Rush County School websites.
Dr. Steve Sickbert indicated that the board may need to revisit the current district lines in light of electing future school board members.
Dr. Williams shared info about how precincts will be adjusted. This information indicates we will go from 6 to 3 precincts. It was cited that old division lines do not have to be followed.
A committee comprised of Dr. Sickbert, John O. Worth and Tammy Jackman will convene to review these guidelines and make a recommendation to the board.
The meeting ended with an unexpected visit by the Indiana State Police citing Dr. Williams for a first offence of “Curfew Violation” (out past age 65). No arrests or tickets were issued at the time. However a “sentence” of singing and ice cream cake soothed the worried brow of the superintendent of schools.
The next meeting of the Rush County School Board is 7 p.m. Nov. 12 at the RCS Administration Center, 330 West Eighth Street, Rushville.
