Laurel BOE signs reciprocal agreements with three districts

CORBIN — CORRECTION - published Feb. 38, 2013 - Due to a reporter’s error, the story on Page 1 of Tuesday’s Times-Tribune should have listed “The current approved procedure for middle school baseball coaching staff is one head coach for varsity team and one head coach for junior varsity team. There is one assistant coach. The previous coaching staff for middle school baseball was one head coach for each grade: 6th, 7th and 8th. There is one assistant coach.”

We regret the error.

Reciprocal agreements with three out-of-town school districts were unanimously approved by the Laurel County Board of Education during its regular session Monday evening.

The agreements were with the neighboring Jackson County Schools, as well as with the Leslie County and Perry County school districts. All three agreements are for the 2013-14 school year.

Superintendent Doug Bennett told board members at the meeting, “We have only a few students from Jackson County and Leslie County who are attending schools here in our district. Presently there are no students living in Perry County who are attending school here, but we’re ready, just in case.”

Moments later approval was given to the second reading of a revised administrative procedure for baseball coaching guidelines for the middle schools. The procedure would involve three coaches for 6th-7th grades — two head coaches and one assistant — instead of four. Approval was also given for the South Eastern Kentucky Middle School Baseball Conference rules and bylaws, and to authorize the appropriate signatures.

Among other items approved were a capital outlay request of roof repairs at Hazel Green Elementary School, along with approval of the Spotlight Entertainment Contract for services, and the January 2013 Treasurer’s Report.

Bennett reported the school system was again recognized as an ASAP (Advancing Student Achievement Proficiency) district by KSBA, the Kentucky School Boards Association.

Later, the board went into executive session to discuss litigation matters. No action was taken.
