Ready For School?

Back to School Sales are picking up as the Jefferson County Schools are gearing up for another school year.
After a rather eventful summer for the Jefferson County School District that included two lawsuits filed against them, JCPS is already sending out student newsletters ensuring that parents are aware that school starts back up on August 13.
In it’s periodical “Parent Connection”, it is reported that the Jefferson County Board of Education has given approval for several changes to the district’s code, (which is entitled “Code of Acceptable Behavior and Discipline” and the “Student Bill of Rights”.
Within this code there are new rules, or guidelines, including one against the possession of pornographic material on school property. That particular code also prohibits the use of the school computer system of sending and receiving any illegal images, obscene, or “sexually explicit materials”.
Another code that will affect the students is one that both limits and strengthens the ability of the educator to discipline a child who uses various technological devices in the classroom. School officials are now allowed to set their own policy regarding the confiscation of various electronic and technological devices such as game systems, cell phones, and iPods that are disrupting the educational process. Unfortunately, the teachers and administrators can only confiscate the “toys” for no longer than thirty days.
