Cocke County School Board meets
Members of the Cocke County School Board meeting Thursday agreed to consider erecting a security fence on the property line of the Grassy Fork Elementary School. An adjoining neighbor has reportedly been harassing school personnel and has been carrying guns and discharging them adjacent to the rural school. School Board member Jimmy Stokley said the neighbor is questioning the property line which was confirmed with a survey. Although the board took no action, the body agreed to confirm the property line and then decide on a plan of action. Tennessee Governor-elect Bill Lee is a proponent of school vouchers which has raised concern on the part of school boards and other proponents of bettering education across the state. Chair of the Board, Dr. Ken Johnson pointed out that the issuance of vouchers would take funding from the local public school system and divert it to private schools. The board, on the recommendation of Director of Schools Manney Moore, plans to pass a resolution in the future, expressing it's opposition to a voucher system. Members gave their stamp of approval to the purchase of $67,270 worth of equipment for the CTE Center. The funding will come from a grant. Director Moore reminded the board that a Christmas concert by local high schoolers is scheduled for the evening of December 7 at First Baptist Church.
