City, School officer agreement on Monday's board agenda

Knoxville — The 28E agreement with the City of Knoxville is on the Monday, Jan. 28, Knoxville School Board agenda. 

This agreement is in regard to the School Resource Officer position. The program existed years ago and was recently resurrected when the City received a federal grant that would cover the bulk of the costs of an additional police officer for three years, if the City agreed to pay all costs in the fourth year.

The City and School District have mutually agreed to split the costs of the local match the grant requires, to have an officer assigned to the schools full-time. A formal, written agreement is necessary for this to occur.

Also on Monday's agenda is the recognition of Randy Wilson, Knoxville Schools' Activities Director. Wilson was recently recognized as SE District MIddle School Athletic Director of the Year. 

The board meets at 5:30 p.m. in the board of education meeting room at 309 West Main. Meetings are open to the public. The full agenda is pasted below. Look for coverage of the meeting in the Journal-Express.
