9 -Candidates Compete For 4 -Positions August 2nd
Transparency, technology and school facilities were major talking points at Tuesday’s Sullivan County Board of Education. Nine candidates competing for four positions in the August second election where four incumbents will face five challengers in District 1, 3, 5 and 7. With early voting for school board elections starting Friday issues include the recent redistricting of Ketron Elementary School, the direction of the school district, the closing of schools and the way the school board works with the public. Technology issues include the need to spend more money for updates like classroom support, computers, online classes and teachers trained for new technologies. Sullivan County Schools has recently partnered with Kingsport City Schools on the new technology school which should address regional educational deficiencies. Most candidates agree that the school board should balance between spending, renovating and saving. (bg)
