Lenoir City school board unanimously bans students

The Lenoir City School Board has approved a proposal to ban students on campus. Board members unanimously approved a ban on students of all ages at its meeting Monday night. The new policy will take effect at the beginning of the 2013-14 school year. Under the proposal, students will be prohibited both on campus, in school vehicles and on field trips. Several Lenoir City High School students spoke at the meeting Monday, saying students on campus are a problem. "I'm in band and I've seen firsthand the negative effect that students can have our school," said junior Cody Nix. "I'm not trying to place blame on anyone. I just wish everyone was more aware of the damage that students can cause." Chemistry teacher Mary Beth Rayford agreed. "Students are a distraction that takes up an unbelievable amount of time. Students also create an 'us versus them' mentality that causes rifts between students and faculty."
