Knox County Board of Education held their first meeting of the year on Thursday, January 27. The Board approved a plan for Lynn Camp to be separated into two schools (Lynn Camp Elementary and Lynn Camp Middle/High School) and set tentative staffing allocations based on student enrollment for each school.
Superintendent Jeremy Ledford presented a plan to the Board to readjust Lynn Camp Schools (Preschool-12) into two schools, Lynn Camp Elementary and Lynn Camp Middle/High School. The change would take effect starting July 1. However, the grade levels served in each school's building will remain the same.
Each school will have an SBDM school-based decision council, a principal, assistant principal, and support staff for attendance, bookkeeping, and office receptionist. In addition, a complete news release and information for Lynn Camp families will be released by the district. The plan was approved as presented.
Superintendent Ledford also shared with the Board tentative staffing allocations based on student enrollment at each school. The student-to-teacher ratios, and support service personnel, have not changed. However, adjustments were made to the previous K-12 staffing for Lynn Camp Schools to mirror other elementary and high schools based on enrollment. The Board voted in favor of the policy.
The next KCPS Board Meeting will be held at the Board of Education Annex at 6:30 p.m. on February 17.
