Knox County Board of Education Vote on Facilitator to Help Decide How Security in County Schools Should Look Fails

Will Knoxville Police Officers remain in Knox County Schools within city limits?

The memorandum of understanding between Knox County schools and the Knoxville Police Department expires in just two days on June 12th. Mayor Kincannon announced back in early May, that once that MOA expires, Knoxville police officers will be taken out of Knox County Schools.

During last night’s (Wednesday) meeting the Board voted 3 – 3 with two members declining to vote on hiring a facilitator to help decide how security in Knox County Schools should be handled.

Superintendent Bob Thomas says he’s spoken with Mayor Kincannon and they plan to talk again on Tuesday, June 14th about the possibility of KPD officers being involved with the school system.
