GRANDVIEW - According to Grandview School District Superintendent Kevin Chase, the district will establish a district wide committee to look at discipline policies and review those policies as a result of the March 26 school board meeting.
The concerns brought about during the March 26 meeting regarding whether or not discipline and/or punishment for students within the school district has been appropriate will be addressed by the committee.
The committee involvement is open to students, teaching staff and parents who would be willing to make recommendations to the Grandview School Board regarding the current policies on discipline.
Chase said the committee should include approximately 12 people because "...a larger group would be too difficult."
He stated that the GEA (Grandview Education Association) approves the idea of forming such a committee.
"This is something that happens all over the state. I want to take the time for this to see if our policies are in line or not in line," said Chase.
Chase said he hopes the Grandview Middle School administration and concerned parents can work together in the endeavor of addressing issues of concern. "They will have their own committee," he stated.
