During their November 11 meeting, the Triton School Board was briefed on plans for six Triton teachers to attend the Red for Ed Rally scheduled for November 19. Superintendent Jeremy Riffle said they will be able to cover classes for the day with substitutes.
There are approximately 10,000 teachers from throughout the state that are registered to attend the rally that will be held at the Statehouse in Indianapolis. The date was selected to coincide with the “Organizational Day” of senators and representatives prior to the 2020 legislative session.
A presentation by the Triton Jr./Sr. High School was postponed till the December meeting due to weather concerns. Before the meeting, Riffle indicated that they were moving the presentation so students would not be driving on impaired roads.
The board approved a memorandum of Understanding with the Town of Bourbon for the Student Resource Officer.
