Regards non-resident student agreement with Knox County Public Schools

CORBIN — By Jeff Noble / Staff writer

Board members of Corbin Independent Schools voted Tuesday to appeal state Commissioner of Education Terry Holliday’s decision on the non-resident student agreement between Corbin and Knox County Public Schools for the new school year.

The vote was 4-0, with Board Chair Kim Croley, Vice-Chair Lisa Cleary and Board Members Todd Childers and Lynne Huff in favor. Board Member Dr. Angela Morris was out-of-town and not present for the vote.

“Basically the decision is similar to last year. The appeal would be to the state Board of Education,” said Corbin Superintendent Ed McNeel before the vote was taken at the special session, held at the district office.

Consideration on the lawsuit filed by the Corbin board that’s still pending in Franklin County Circuit Court was also approved, 4-0. Afterwards, board members went into executive session. During the session, no formal action was taken.

It is the third time Corbin Independent has appealed after Knox County Schools rejected the agreement, which began in 2009 when Knox County ended the contract which allowed students living in Knox County to attend Corbin schools at no cost.
