Cocke County School Board meet
The Cocke County Board of Education, meeting recently was told all schools now must post a "In God We Trust" plaque. The Tennessee General Assembly passed legislation last year to require the posting of the national motto. Suggestions for the plaque, similar in color, font and material, will be presented to the system's principals at their meeting later this month. Carol Johnson, spokesperson for the Cocke County High School Science Department, talked to the board about the lack of books and materials that are needed to teach Science classes. Assistant Director of Schools Casey Kelley told the board that discussions with Rural Medical Services have not resulted in an agreement for in-school medical clinics for Cocke County and Cosby High Schools. As a result, Kelley said he is exploring other options. The board agreed to advertise for bids on five new buses; two 60 passenger buses and three 84 passenger buses. Member Darrin Costner, who did not seek re-election to his seat, was recognized for his eight years of service on the board. He will be replaced on the board by Otha Rolen. The board also agreed to provide a band instructor for sixth, seventh and eighth grade students at the Newport Grammar School. Band instruction will be provided from 8 am till 8:30 am, five days per week. Newport Grammar will pay the county system $4,000 for the service.
