Two students at Phelps Elementary School proposed a bill through their "We the People" project that would allow teaching a job skills class once a week, effective in the fall semester.
Vanessa Abston and Ryan Clements said the problem with schools is that they don't teach students how to adequately get a job after graduation. They suggested having a job requirement class one day a week to teach the skills. They said only 46 percent of Casey graduates go to college and most of the others seek jobs.
Near the end of the board meeting Monday at Phelps school, Mike Davis, board member, asked the board to consider the proposal for a class at the high school. No action was taken, but Superintendent Linda Hatter said the board will look into a class for high school students.
