After their former leader was formally charged with bribery, the Vigo County School Corporation is looking to review and revise certain policies, to make sure they never experience incidents like this again.
Officials of the Vigo County School Corporation met tonight for the first reading on the corporation’s policy review on conflicts of interest and nepotism.
This is one of the many issues new superintendent Robert Haworth wanted to review and discuss following Tanoos’ arrest.
Superintendent Haworth and the school board are looking to revise the current policy, as well as the policies on purchasing authority and gifts to school employees.
“Another component that i think should be addressed is administrative guidelines that go with those policies,” said Superintendent Haworth. “So, it’s one thing to create the rules, but it’s another to charge your administrative team to carry out those rules.”
Haworth also says on their next meeting on November 5th, the school board plans to bring in an outside organization to get its views and opinions on policy revisions.
Also on Monday’s meeting, the school board discussed a number of topics on improving local schools.
This includes a 4.75% raise in teacher salary and adopting a bond oversight committee, to talk with the public on how bonds are spent.
