Eastern Pulaski School Board to Tackle Several Topics

 The Eastern Pulaski School Board will consider a policy concerning the possession firearms on school property.

In a previous meeting, the school board members discussed this because a change in Indiana law allowed concealed weapons with a permit to be in locked cars on school property. The change allowed school boards to consider whether weapons should be allowed within the schools. The policy wouldn’t apply to students, just a designated group of faculty members who have gone through proper training.

Board member Rhonda Heims said she’d like to get community input on this topic. You may discuss your opinion on this proposed policy in today’s meeting during the visitor’s recognition portion of the meeting.

The board members will also discuss the use of seclusions and restraints, the textbook fees for the next school year, the disposal of surplus/junk and the request to purchase equipment as part of the school safety grant.

Superintendent Dan Foster will discuss what is planned for the start of school.

The meeting begins at 5:30 p.m. ET in the distance learning lab on the Eastern Pulaski School Corporation campus.
