Student Representative for Henry County School Board (First Reading)
Speaker(s):  Dr. Brain Norton

Dr. Norton introduced on first reading, the student representative of the school board policy. His request to the board was to implement a student from Henry County High School as a student representative. 

This request follows from the HCHS students that attended the SCOPE Conference and informed the board that other systems encourage a student representative. Dr. Norton advised the board that TSBA has a policy that allows the board to select a student representative that has no vote, but represents the student body. 

Dr. Norton stated the student representative must be a Senior, grades in good standings, and attend all board meetings.

Board members approved the item and asked that the wording regarding the policy be changed from "applicant" to "student representative" and that Principals make the recommendations.
