Let's work together on lead

Don Dulaney

At the last school board meeting, our board was asked to vote on an amendment to the student handbook to require all incoming kindergarteners be tested for lead.

This amendment did not pass, however, it’s not because school board members who voted against it are opposed to lead screenings. It was because making a change to the school handbook alone, especially when school enrollment is already underway, is not the right approach.
