December Hubbard-Radcliffe School Board

Hubbard-Radcliffe School Boarde Secretary Deb England is sworn into office by Superintendent Dr. Adam Zellmer at Monday's meeting in Radcliffe. 

Chapter 103 of Iowa’s administrative rules on corporal punishment, seclusion and restraint has been under review for some time. The Hubbard-Radcliffe School Board learned at its meeting on Monday in Radcliffe that the rules will kick in on Jan. 20.

“Chapter 103 has been a long and battle-filled road and what it basically came down to is the state wasn’t going to get federal funding for the next year if we did not have these rules in place by Jan. 20,” Superintendent Dr. Adam Zellmer. “What it talks about are some controversial things – corporal punishment, restraint, physical confinement of students, detention, seclusion from classrooms – those things become very hot-button, debated issues.”
