Sullivan County Committed to Innovation Academy
Two years ago, the Sullivan County and Kingsport school systems partnered up to operate Innovation Academy. Thanks to a million dollar grant, the STEM school was created to teach science, technology, engineering and math to 6th-8th graders from our region. We told you yesterday that Kingsport Board of Education members say now that the two year contract is up, they want out of the partnership. We followed up with Sullivan County officials and Director of Schools Dr. Jubal Yennie says his school system is prepared to operate Innovation Academy on their own. He also says a plan for operational costs have already been worked out and the price tag of funding the school will not be an issue.
