Al Simmons has first meeting as superintendent

The Winn Parish School Board at the June 28 meeting, with Al Simmons taking his seat as superintendent for the first time.

The Winn Parish School Board met in a special public session on June 28, and Al Simmons took the superintendent seat for the first time. The meeting kicked off with Leah Clingan wanting to change the graduation dress code policy after WSHS prevented graduates this year from wearing military stoles. “I don’t care if it’s FBLA, FFA 4-H, if they have it they should be able to wear it,” Clingan said. “They’ve worked for it, there’s no reason why they can’t wear it.”

Clingan wanted the new policy to be in effect by the start of the school year, but Simmons didn’t know if enacting the policy would be plausible in that short a time span, but would like to have it take effect soon enough to give notice before the graduation in 2022.
