Corporal Punishment Regulations

Some new regulations regarding corporal punishment in Kentucky schools. Members of the Kentucky Department of Education passed amended regulations regarding corporal punishment in Kentucky’s schools. Among them the new regulation defines corporal punishment as the deliberate infliction of physical pain on a student’s body as a penalty or punishment. It requires a school district that allows corporal punishment to get written consent from a student’s legal guardian within the first five days of the school year. The school must also receive verbal consent from the guardian before the punishment is given.
