MANSFIELD, OH - During the Mansfield City Schools Board meeting Tuesday night, the board appointed two new leaders for the upcoming 2019-2020 school year and talked about enforcing the school system's campus wear policy that has been in effect as a guideline for the last several years.

The District appointed Amanda Mahon as Assistant Principal at Mansfield Senior High, and Tara Strang as Assistant Principal for Malabar Intermediate. 

"We feel that they are all part of what we what we want to do," said Mansfield City Schools Superintendent Stan Jefferson. "If you look at their backgrounds, they're outstanding... their credentials are outstanding, in terms of the academic school reform we are trying to establish in our conducive learning environment."

The topic that brought the most discussion at the meeting focused on the school system looking to enforce school uniforms by citing policies in the student handbook.

"We have had (the policy) as a guideline since the time that the school has been opened," Jefferson said. "If you're going to have a policy, there is only one thing you can do. You either enforce the policy or you don't have the policy anymore. The policy is there, we want to force it."

The Board stressed that there were not many changes to the policy itself - rather, the school system will be enforcing it for the upcoming academic year. 

According to Superintendent Stan Jefferson, the district will be using the staggered start of the year to talk with students and parents about the enforcement of the policy and the changes that are being made.
