The Christian County School Board approved further reroofing projects at Hopkinsville High School and approved an addendum to the Code of Acceptable Behavior at Thursday’s meeting.
The next phase of the ongoing reroofing project at Hopkinsville High School will be over the 200 hall, which Chief Operations Officer Brad Hawkins describes as being in particularly bad shape.
Principals will have a new option of discipline for dealing with terroristic threatening, which was an immediate expulsion in the Code of Acceptable Behavior. Students who commit terroristic threatening that is a felony, which includes examples such bomb threats, bringing weapons onto school property or threatening to kill others, will still be subject to expulsion.
The change comes for students who make more minor threats, such as against a single person, and District Attorney Jack Lackey says it will allow for principals to use their discretion on either sending that student to alternative school or recommending expulsion.
The board approved the change to take effect January 1. Ashton Grace was recognized at the meeting for being the 2018 Soap Box Derby World Super Stock Champion and Svanah Martin was recognized for being the 2018 Tennessee Walking Horse Reserve World Champion.
