The Knox County School Board will vote today on whether to move millions of dollars from one school project to another.
The board is set to vote Wednesday on whether to transfer almost $3.8 million from Pond Gap Elementary to a renovation fund for a new magnet high school. The career technical education center is set to open in the fall of 2014 on the Pellissippi Straw Plains campus.
School leaders say the building needs work before it can house students
"It should allow us to do both projects in the time-frames we anticipated doing them in and it should not have any effect of delaying the Pond Gap project or having any negative impact on the Pond Gap project whatsoever," said Superintendent Dr. Jim McIntyre.
School leaders say they will pull money from the next fiscal year to ensure the Pond Gap project has the resources it needs for renovations set for summer of 2014.
