Should you be required to live where you work? The Independence School District thinks so.
A new residency rule is shaking up their top staff. About 60 principals, assistant principals and other Independence School District administrators who live outside the district are now going to have to start house hunting.
A policy just passed by the school board forces administrators to live in the district by February 2015. The idea was insisted upon by superintendent Dr Jim Hinson. But why?
It is just one of the headline grabbing stories that has put Hinson in the news of late. He’s also seen himself on the Today Show and Good Morning America in the last several weeks as the district opts to enroll more than a dozen of its most obese students in a 28 thousand dollar a semester weight loss camp in South Carolina.
Dr. Hinson sat down with Nick Haines on The Local Show.
