The Knoxville School Board will meet in regular session Monday night, and on the agenda is an agreement with the City of Knoxville for a school resource officer.
The City has been awarded a COPS grant from the federal government. Terms of the grant include covering the majority of the costs of a police officer for three years, if the City agrees to keep the officer employed for a fourth, with the City paying the full price.
Police Chief Dan Losada and Schools Superintendent Randy Flack have discussed using this grant to pay to resurrect the school liaison program. The City Council is also supportive of this, if the school district agrees to pay half of the City's costs to employ the officer.
This issue and more will be discussed at the board meeting. The meeting will be held at 5:30 p.m. Monday, Aug. 13, in the board room at 309 West Main. The full agenda is pasted below.
