According to WBIR TV 10 website, the Knox County School Board is closer to a NEW West Knox County High School. Several School officials have made comments at public functions and in PTA/PTSA publications that the school will open in August 2007. Now Karen Carson is indicating in this WBIR story that if the school is not complete that students still need to be put in there. The Knox County Codes Enforcement, State Building Inspectors and the County/State Fire Marshals may have something to say about that.
Remember the Alternative School proposal at the Boys Club facilities. The School District officials wanted to use the facilities, however, the fire marshal said you have to meet the correct codes, and the centers never opened.
