Chapel Hill ISD Board Amends Corporal Punishment Policy

Posted:

At a meeting Monday, Chapel Hill ISD board members unanimously approved changes to the district's corporal punishment policy.

The new policy states that "female principal(s) or designee shall spank or paddle female students" and "male principal(s) or designee shall spank or paddle male students."

Another change in the disciplinary code allows students to choose corporal punishment instead of a Special Assignment Class, otherwise known as in-school suspension.

Chapel Hill ISD parents can object to the use of corporal punishment with their child. About 70 percent of parents of high school students chose to allow spanking to be used on their child or children.
