(Continued)

Anderson University students were also recognized for their community service project that helped ACS schools.

Changes to bylaws and policies

The school board completed its first read-through of policy changes Tuesday evening and will vote on the matter next month.

Human Resources Manager Eric Creviston said the district is "changing policy to meet laws."

One of the biggest changes, he noted, is the state requirement for school corporations to adopt new anti-bullying policies, develop plans, implement programming and establish committees.

Revisions also include defining "permissible and limited use of force to allow staff members to prevent students from self-injury, injury to others, property damage or disruption of the educational function" and other small changes.
