New Pool Policy Being Considered by Fargo School Board

Posted: Updated:
Before anyone jumps into a Fargo School pool, a lifeguard must be there. That's the rule proposed in the new Fargo Public School's swimming policy going up for review by the school board Tuesday.

The policy says any activity or event hosted at a Fargo School District pool, will need a certified lifeguard present. 

It also requires all school pools to have a series of rescue equipment, including a defibrillator, security camera and lifeguard station on deck. 

A task force of administration headed by Dr. Grosz and including several people working at the schools have put together the policy. 

If approved by the board it would go in effect July 1st, 2014.

The change follows the death of a student earlier this year. In February, Frederic Ndererimana, was found at the bottom of the Fargo South High School pool while taking part in a swimming class -- he later died at a local hospital.
