At Tuesday night’s Marinette School Board meeting, Athletic Director Dean Furton furnished the amended code of conduct to the board. Furton says the code hasn’t been updated since 2012.
Furton says this past year the district followed their code in different situations and during that time they noticed that the consequences were varied; It was at that time they realized it needed to be rectified.
The Marinette School District followed their usual review process which included an extensive review of what is occurring in competing districts, what WIAA expects, and ultimately making sure it aligns with the Marine Way. Which the Board unanimously agreed and approved to begin in the 2017 – 18 School year.
