A number of proposed bills have already been prefiled in Frankfort in anticipation of the January 2017 legislative session.
Among the bills are BR426 which would essentially kill school-based decision making councils and put the district in charge of establishing school policies, making personnel decisions, determining instructional materials and student support services, planning professional development, and filling principal vacancies. Councils would move into more of an advisory capacity. The bill also calls for K-5 schools to implement a School Wellness Plan and was filed by Senator John Schickel from Boone County.
