Board member Marion Barnes brought up the issue, saying some principals might be misinterpreting the policy. While board policy prohibits alternative program students from trespassing on other campuses, it still allows those students to walk across the stage with their home schools.
All board members agreed, some raising questions about how the policy could have been misinterpreted in the first place.
“For the average student who has been sent to the alternative center who is a senior, I think taking that away from them, that’s just ugly,” board president Venus Cain said. “Let the child walk.”
