PIERCETON â€” With a newly elected Indiana state education superintendent, school board members and administration with Whitko Community School Corporation are keeping a close eye on pending legislation.
At Mondayâ€™s school board meeting, Superintendent Steve Clason shared what bills would have a direct impact on Whitko schools.
â€śWe are in the middle of a session so a lot of bills wonâ€™t go anywhere,â€ť Clason said. â€śThere are some we are watching for. The ones that could impact us here at home are of the greatest importance.â€ť
One particular bill made cursive writing a must for educators.
â€śWho would have thought teaching cursive writing would be up for debate, but it was and we will continue to teach it to our students,â€ť said Clason.
Some decisions made at the state level are blanket regulations passed down to each district. However, what affects a larger district positively, could hinder a small corporation such as Whitko.
