I presented the CHART policy to the North Bolivar School Board yesterday (2/21) during their monthly meeting, which took place at the district’s central office in Shelby, MS. This was the first presentation done in Bolivar County, one of our newly identified Priority 1 counties. The district held a community meeting to discuss the new sex education requirement, and there was overwhelming support for the abstinence-plus option. Superintendent Jesse King expressed strong support for the CHART policy, along with the members of the board.
This presentation counts as the school board’s first reading of the policy. They will officially vote on it during their March board meeting.
