Code of conduct talk pushed back at Metro Public Safety Committee meeting

LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- A meeting held Wednesday was supposed to address the JCPS code of conduct. However, JCPS and the Metro Public Safety Committee saw the clock run out on a conversation many are waiting to have.
The meeting lasted more than 90 minutes, but officials never really went in-depth on the potential code of conduct changes for JCPS.
"Well it is absolutely one conversation, and it's a conversation that we ran out of time on today," said Allison Martin with JCPS communications.
Even though a formal code of conduct presentation was pushed back, officials say they aren't shying away from the topic.
"What we are doing right now is not working," Martin.said
"Part of my reasoning for having them come here was to have that opportunity, because this is really about a big community dialogue," said David James with the Metro Public Safety Committee.
If there is any silver lining to the situation, we now have a semi-clear time table when JCPS and the public safety committee will address the proposed new code of conduct. It will most likely be the early part of July when officials have the time to talk about it.
"It is a conversation that is sometimes difficult to have, but what we have to do is have a code of conduct that is fair for teachers (and) fair for students," Martin said.
The reason the code of conduct discussion will have to wait until July is because budget meetings are already slated to take place during the entire month of June.
