While this blog in the past has been critical of PBA and the Knox County School Board. Let me say, while Dr. McIntyre and I would disagree on certain positions. I do respect him for his ability and his competence. Both traits that past Superintendents have lacked. One former Superintendent could not even pronounce “schools”.
When School Board Members say that PBA decided to use a contractor for security system installations at Hardin Valley and Powell Middle. That is bull.
PBA received an email from schools that was first published at the beginning of this controversy that stated, that they (PBA) were to use the (schools) term bid contractor for security systems. It went on to say that should they determine to bid it out and should any problems arise then PBA would be held accountable for it.
PBA complied and now since the problems occurred after PBA did what schools instructed. Schools should now be accountable.
