MARION COUNTY, Fla -- Corporal punishment is coming back to Marion County schools, but with key differences from the policy that was struck down in 2010.

On Tuesday night, the School Board voted 3-2 to reinstate the policy but only for elementary schools. Parents must give written permission beforehand, as well as give verbal permission to school officials before it's carried out.

A student can only receive corporal punishment once per semester.
