Knox County School Board Breaks Promise to Community about discussion

Here is the current schedule for establishing a zone for Hardin Valley High School this is taken from the Knox County Schools website:

Monday, Nov. 20 Andrew Johnson Bldg. Board Work Session, Boardroom, Presentation/Board Discussion of proposed zone for HVHS

Monday, Dec. 4 Fulton High School, Auditorium, Work Session, Public Forum of proposed zone for HVHS

Wednesday, Dec. 6 City/County Building, Board of Education , Large Assembly Room, Public Forum and Action Concerning HVHS Zone.

The Vice-Chair of the School Board Cindy Buttry made a point at the meeting this past Monday about the previous announcement of public discussion to be held on Nov. 20, 2006. The School Board Chair said that Vice-Chair Buttry was lying. Buttry and School Board Member Thomas Deakins attended all three meetings and stayed until the last parent left. The same can not be said for the Board Chair.

Here is a post from October 19, 2006 on Thomas Deakins blog.

HVHS School Zones – Meeting Schedule

Just in case you thought you should be at the meeting this coming Monday, October 23.

The School Board will meet this coming Monday night for our middle of the month work session. We will receive a summary of comments and suggestions from our community meetings. The School Board will not be presented with the proposed zone for HVHS.

We will not discuss the proposed zone until our meeting on November 20.
I will keep you posted on upcoming meetings.


The second slide in the presentation at the community meetings say/said (Because Brian’s Blog is sure the slide will change after this post. We have a copy in the archives)

Monday November 20 – Andrew Johnson Building – Board Work Session Presentation/Discussion of proposed zone for HVHS

Monday December 4 – Andrew Johnson Building – Board Work Session Discussion of proposed zone for HVHS

Wednesday December 6 – City County Building – Board of Education action concerning HVHS zone.

Apparently the word discussion has separate meanings from the slide of Nov. 20 and Dec. 4th. The Board Chair has moved (NOW) the only meeting for Public discussion 20 miles or more away from the communities affected. To a location without an interstate exit ramp. The Broadway exit off of I-40 east is no longer present and available. Email the Board Chair here, or phone 865-675-0236 or 865-300-6443.
