The Knox County Board of Education voted Wednesday to end its agreement with the University of Tennessee's Leadership Academy, a training program for school administrators.
After public comment in support of and against the academy, board members voted 7-2 to terminate the agreement. Board members Gloria Deathridge and Lynne Fugate voted to keep the program.
Board member Tony Norman said there needs to be a leadership change at the Leadership Academy.
"He's got to go," Norman said, referring to McIntyre.
"I hear on a regular basis people that are not in favor of him training our current administrators given that we did not feel like he was the direction we wanted to go as a superintendent for Knox County," board chair Patti Bounds said.
Before the next board meeting, KCS Superintendent Bob Thomas will form a committee and address the county's concerns with the program in the hope of coming to a new agreement with the Leadership Academy.
