LAKEVILLE â€“ A job description for a weight room supervisor brought out concerns about a school policy that may leave the school and students vulnerable on legal and security fronts.
Superintendent Mitchell Mawhorter said the position is justified for several reasons, including because the room is used on a regular basis by students and non-students, without supervision. These non-students are adults who are not affiliated with the school.
In addition, school officials are unsure how many keys to the room are in use.
