School board mulls 'guilt by association'
Placeholder Image
MONROE - Whether or not student athletes should be subject to "guilt by association" has Monroe school board members arguing more than usual. The topic originally surfaced at a board meeting in August and re-emerged Sept. 28, when Monroe High School Principal Chris Medenwaldt and Athletic Director Dave Hirsbrunner brought this year's athletic handbook to the board for approval. Board members temporarily rejected the specific "guilt by association" line in the handbook's code of conduct but said they would discuss the issue further for future revisions of the handbook.
