NEW PORT RICHEY, Fla (TBO.com)- Standing inside a Mitchell High School classroom this week, officials with the Pasco County school district and the sheriff’s office implored parents to play an active role in their kids’ education.
“I hate to sound like a broken record, but parents are critical,” Pasco school district superintendent Kurt Browning said. “Parents cannot drop kids off at their school and then just pick them up in the afternoon. They’ve got to provide some discipline, they’ve got to provide some structure for these kids.”
Before school opens Monday morning across Pasco County, Browning, Pasco Sheriff Chris Nocco and others discussed school safety and antibullying efforts.
