Please make arrangements to contact your child's current school by April 15 if you plan on your child continuing at his/her current school. If you intend to move your child to the new assigned school district, please contact the new school by April 15. Please do not hesitate to contact the Transportation Department (865-590-0153) if you have additional questions about addresses impacted by redistricting.

Travel Time is an Issue

It would seem that the School Super's program to reduce travel time for students conflicts with the School Board's intention to build one new super school at Roane State and close all the others. If you look at the map the School Board plan would create a geographical monster. The lack of bridges over Watts Bar Lake creates bottle necks that are difficult to deal with.

I feel for the School Board members who have to satisfy their old school constituencies while coming up with a rational proposal for Roane County's future. The two are obviously in direct conflict.
