Graves Co School Policy Manual
By Angela Hatton
Mayfield, KY – The Kentucky attorney general's office says Graves County school district violated state law by not providing a hard copy of a policies and procedures manual to parents who requested it. Assistant Attorney General Amye Bensenhaver says the Graves County school district improperly referred parents Tommy and Sharon Morefield to a Web site instead of providing a copy of the manual. She says some people may not have computers or the skills to download the requested records electronically. School district attorney David Hargrove says the district doesn't keep a current hard copy of the policy manual because the records are updated so often. Hargrove says the law which requires hard copies may be outdated in today's electronic world.
