Didn't the board non renew her contract?
This is her last year correct?

Sleepy,
who is 'Kim Knott' ?

Is the term "non-renew" some new type of bureaucratic speak?
 
Does this have anything to do the merger talks between
the CCS system and the GCCS system?
Doesn't  the state have to approve any merger?

The board did NOT renew CCS Superintendent Kim Knotts contract.  Check Holy Cow's comments under the Education forum. 

 

It's still a rumor regarding CCS & GCCS on a merger.  I don't see it happening, but it wouldn't be the first time I was wrong!

Any word on Ms. Knott??

 

Is she in or out??

 

I bet she gets to stay after being non renewed a year ago.

If she is not kept, you may not see a major posting. I hear the principal of the new tech school is lobbying to take over if Knott is not renewed.

Shouldn't C ville be on the move one way or the other?

Curious to know if any of the good people on the chatter attended the hearing?

I attended the hearing. Not so shocking that Kim Knott decided it was ok to show up and see who all was there.

My Clarksville people say she is in but for only one year to give them adequate time to post the opening for the following year.

Isn't that the reason they gave her notice a year ago!!!!!!

 

This job needs to be posted and should have been posted

 

well over a year ago.

 

This board does nothing but hit the easy button.

 

Look at the previous hires.

 

Principle MS...First year first ever asst Principal gets the Principal job after letting top guy go.

 

Instead of letting this guy go they make up a job.  Asst. Transportation Director...FOR WHAT  5 busses.

 

Now Middle school principal.  Instead of looking for a leader they get a guy who has been fired as AD 

 

and moved in house from job to job.  WOW.

 

Now we move to Superintendent, give her notice then wait until time expires and what??? We need more time.

 

Bad decision after bad decision.   Ask any teacher in any system within 50 miles the reputation of our board and how

 

we treat teachers by are leaders.   The answers my friends are blowing in the wind.

From this section of your post Sleepy, I am to assume that you are somehow affiliated with or formerly affiliated with Clarksville Schools. My question to you is: What are your feelings about the Renaissance Academy (new tech school)? I am eager to hear your take. I know very little about the school other than what our young church friend tells us on the occasional Sunday.

Seems to me that continuing stalling might be because of the possibility of merging with GCCS?

It's a sad day in our district. Knott's contract was renewed again. They say it's only for a year, but let's be honest...we've been hearing that same song since 2012 and clearly it doesn't matter that they non renewed her contract then. I wonder how many teachers and staff will leave because of this decision.

Did you contact the board member who represents your district to let him know your feelings on the matter?

As I understand it, Ms. Knotts had a rolling 3 year contract, (as does Melin.)  Could this be an attempt to meet the terms of the contract?

 

We've been getting large glossy post cards regarding the tech school.

 

How sad that Clarksville schools closed GRC because of necessary maintenance (sound familiar?) at the same time they were spending on the Renaissance school - to no one's knowledge.

They don't seem to listen to much.
