The Knox County School Board is preparing for next school year.


The board met for a special-called meeting Tuesday, July 5, to get several programs and projects underway.

The bulk of the agenda was assigned to a paving project for G.R. Hampton Elementary School.

With $94,000 designated to the construction project, the board negotiated with contractor Roberts Construction to receive the maximum amount of work within that budget.

The board was presented with two options for the paving project; the first option would provide 34 additional parking spaces in the front parking lot, but would also allow the installation of two canopies on the property. One canopy would be at the entrance to the kitchen and another would be located at the bus pick-up; the second option would provide a slightly larger parking lot but would eliminate the canopies.
