LIMESTONE COUNTY, AL (WAFF) -

Limestone County Career Tech students may be in jeopardy of not getting their cosmetology licenses.

This comes as the state cosmetology board aims to change its policy that stops high school students from taking the license exam.

The board feels it's impossible for high schoolers to get 1,200 clock hours in just two years, claiming these students end up not having enough experience.

Limestone County Superintendent Tom Sisk said these claims are outrageous.

"If a young person wants to pursue in cosmetology or barbering and we have the resources to give them a quality education, then by heavens, they have the right to sit down and take that test,” said Sisk.

The school cosmetology board is meeting May 8, and its decisions may be far-reaching to other schools.

Sisk said he plans to be there to fight for his students and program and encourages others to be there as well.
