Local school board discusses uniforms
During its work session Wednesday afternoon, the McCracken County Public Schools Board of Education discussed the possibility of implementing school uniforms for the entire district.
According to spokeswoman Jayme Jones, the meeting was held to gauge interest from attendees, and determined there was enough interest to continue looking into the matter.
Jones says the next step would be to hold community forums. No dates have been set, but the meetings would likely be held in Lone Oak, Reidland, and Heath schools. The discussion is in the very early stages, and Jones said much more research will be conducted before any action is taken.
The board also discussed the school system’s grading scale. A decision on that is to be made at a special meeting on June 29. The new grading scale would be implemented in the fall. Jones says there will be changes in the grading scale, but it’s not known what those changes will be. She says several options being considered.
