School policy addition will regulate movies shown in class, at activities

Unlike the previous three school board meetings, there was little discussion last Tuesday on an addition to a Chase County Schools’ policy dealing with movies shown in classrooms and any school-sponsored activity.
Several parents have been in attendance at the previous three meetings with requests for a policy on the issue.
There had been nothing in writing previously, just a “practice” on use of PG-13 or R-rated movies, according to school administrators.
After R-rated films were shown in Spanish classes this past school year, parents approached board members and administrators with complaints and requests for a policy on the issue.
According to statements from two administrators, Spanish teacher Beth Larson had not approached them about showing the films in question, and some parents with students in her class did not receive permission slips.
