City School teachers given pass if needed for pension rally

A plan has been set into motion that will allow teachers at Barbourville Independent Schools the opportunity to attend a rally if Kentucky’s Governor calls a special session to vote on pension reform.


While a date has not yet been announced, Governor Matt Bevin stands firm that he will soon announce a special-called session of the Kentucky House and Senate to vote on his proposed pension reform plan. If and when that time comes, Barbourville Independent Schools will dismiss class for one day, allowing faculty and staff to rally in Frankfort showing support for their state pension. The Board’s answer to this extra day is to utilize a no-school day, May 22, 2018, as a make-up day. The day is also the primary election, but Barbourville Independent School is not a voting poll location, therefore school can be in session if needed. It is only during a United States presidential election that schools don’t have the option to stay open.
