Public discussion on athletic conference on Monday's school board agenda

Knoxville — The Knoxville School Board will meet in regular session Monday, Sept. 24, at 5:30 p.m., in the board room at 309 West Main. Included on Monday's agenda is the opportunity for the public to share their thoughts regarding which athletic conference Knoxville should be a part of in the future. 

This topic came up at a recent board meeting, as Knoxville's enrollment has declined. Meanwhile, other schools in the Little Hawkeye Conference are growing. The South Central Conference has invited Knoxville to return to its ranks. This includes schools such as Albia, Centerville and Chariton. 

Activities Director Randy Wilson reported to the board that most of his coaches would prefer a move to the South Central Conference. In a Journal-Express online poll, 67 percent believe Knoxville should return to that conference as well.

Before any action is taken on a possible move, the board wanted to hear from the public. Monday night is that opportunity.

The full agenda for Monday's meeting is pasted below.
