City school board tables policy on non-resident student limits

By MELISSA ARNOLD State Journal Staff Writer Published:

The Frankfort Independent Board of Education tabled a proposed non-resident student policy Tuesday night after public concerns were aired.

Bruce Dungan, elected chairman at Tuesday night's meeting, asked for the board for the delay.

A number of citizens questioned the proposed policy. The media center at Frankfort High School was filled with concerned parents and alumni.

Mary Anna Rodgers, a resident of the city school district, told the board she believes the proposal is too restrictive.

"I think this needs to be given more consideration," she said. "I want assurance that every avenue has been pursued to get the money that is needed."

Rodgers asked the board to consider delaying action until the policy could be discussed with the community and alumni in an open session. She was also representing the alumni association.

"How do you tell alumni to be involved in this school district, but that they can't send their children here because they don't live in this district?" she asked.
