Metcalfe County Board Meeting Summary
EDMONTON, Ky. (December 18, 2018) – The Metcalfe County Board of Education met in regular session on Tuesday, December 11, 2018.
During the board meeting, Family Court Judge Mica Wood Pence administered the Constitutional Oaths of Office to board members Joey Shive and Donnie Perry. Both new terms begin in January 2019 and will end in December 2022.
On the agenda, board members approved adding a school police department to the district called SLEO which stands for School Law Enforcement Officer. The plan is to have three certified law enforcement officers – one at each school. Those officers will have jurisdiction on school grounds and at some school events held off campus. Job descriptions for the police officers have been posted on the district’s website. The district is awaiting final approval from the state to move forward.
