After voting against allowing foreign exchange students to study in Vermilion Parish last month, the school board had a change of heart after learning they could not be held accountable if anything would happen to the foreign exchange student if he or she catches COVID-19.
The school board decided to get a legal opinion from school board attorney Bob Hammond on if the school board would be responsible for the student if he or she gets sick.
