Fulton County Schools rejects contract with Fulton Independent Schools

by Barbara Atwill

Fulton County Board of Education met in regular session Dec. 13 at the Board Office with Board members Kim Hagler, Jacob Goodman, and Perry Turner attending. Rob Garrigan and Barry Patrick were not present.

The Board members were informed Fulton Independent Schools had sent a proposed Non-Resident Contract, different from what Superintendent Aaron Collins had seen in the past. The new contract is asked for a change, to allow 10 students and one-to-one ratio.

Collins’ suggestion was to reject the Non-Resident Contract with Fulton Independent School for the 2019-2020 School Year, with the Board approving the recommendation.

The Superintendent is to make an offer of “Any and All Students from Fulton Independent may attend Fulton County Schools”.

The Board approved Non-Resident Contracts with Calloway County, Graves County, Carlisle County, Mayfield City, McCracken County, Paducah Independent, and Hickman County for the 2019-2020 School Year for “Any and All Students”.

More information about the Fulton County Board of Education meeting will be published in the Dec. 19 issue of The Current.
