Raleigh, NC (WRAL) – Schools in North Carolina are being warned to be cautious in the aftermath of a string of school tie and safety issues in the past few weeks.
New safety guidelines issued by the Rutherford Countians School Board on Monday include a warning for tie remOVALS in the wake of an incident in a North Carolina high school.
Ralph Nunn, the state’s former education secretary, issued a series of recommendations that were issued after a string at North Carolina schools over the past several weeks, including the removal of school ties for some students.
The state said it will require schools to have a safety plan for tieremOVALS, and that any tieremoved must be immediately removed from the student.
Nunn recommended the state take action to address the issue by requiring all schools to be able to tie their students.
Noll said he had received numerous reports from parents of tieremovers that were not removed.
Nuns’ recommendations include requiring school districts to have school tie staff members on hand to tie ties and a school district liaison officer who would be available at all tieremoves.
The recommendations were made following the release of a report on ties removALes by the North Carolina Department
