County schools to update policies
By VERNON SIKES
In view of the fact that 1989 was the last time board policy had been updated, the Yazoo County School Board voted last Thursday to spend $14,500 to bring the district's policies up-to-date. Trustee Ralph May abstained as the remainder of the board approved the proposal.
“You can have some liability if your policies are not updated,” said Denotris Jackson of the Mississippi School Board Association (MSBA). “Say, for instance, that your policy says graduation requirements are 17 Carnegie units. Well, that's 15 years old, and if your handbook says 24 Carnegie units, then, your handbook and your policy are out of compliance.”
