State denies HCCSV waiver; teachers to miss conference

The Huntington County Community Schools have been denied a state waiver that would have allowed the corporation to cancel classes for one full day, instead of two half days, for teacher training.

The denial means that HCCSC teachers won't be able to attend a conference the corpora-tion is hosting later in the school year, HCCSC superintendent Tracey Shafer told mem-bers of the corporation's Board of Trustees during their meeting on Monday, Aug. 10.

The denial, however, does not change the 2009-10 school calendar already published.
