The Brussels School Board discussed revisions to both the elementary school and high school handbooks at the August board meeting.
The elementary school handbook was revised based on suggestions and input from teachers. Changes to the handbook included simplifying information in the Soaring with the Eagles sections, an update to the appendix and changes in lunch and breakfast prices.
The high school handbook was reviewed and updated to clarify information and ensure that it follows the guidelines in the model handbook from the Illinois Principals Association.
Hope Smith received special recognition during the meeting. Smith was recently featured in PullUSA for winning the title of Spring 2022 IHSA Clay Target League Female Overall.
