  • Field trips, suspensions dominate school board

    The seats were filled for the Levy County School Board’s March 8 meeting in anticipation of  Superintendent Bob Hastings’ recommendation on the suspension of Lillie Law.
    However, they had to wait because the meeting got off to a late start of 6:30 — delayed by the expulsion hearings that ran longer than scheduled.
    The school board unanimously accepted a staff recommended revision of the “Approved Field Trip List” to allow students to go on field trips to theme parks, but with conditions.

  • School Board, superintendent comments

    Some of the features include not only grades, but attendance, athletic eligibility and health records.
    Hastings went on to also praise Director of Finance, Bob Clemons and his team for their “tremendous efforts.”
