Board of Education approves extending school day
Peg Broadcasting News Friday March 27, 2015

The Cumberland County Board of Education in regular session Thursday night voted 5-4 to approve an option that will extend the school day by one hour for a total of 13 days in order to make up 2 snow days. In all, Cumberland County students missed 17 days for the year. 10 of those were built into the calendar, 2 were made up by converting staff development days to instructional days and 3 were waived by the State, leaving 2 days to be made up. Several options were before the Board, including an option to add the days to the end of the calendar, however, a motion to approve that option was voted down, with most board members concerned about instruction time prior to the TCAP testing. Board members later approved a second motion to extend the school day by one hour starting April 13th. The additional hour will be in effect through April 29th.

UT terminates Men's Basketball Coach Tyndall
Vol Network Friday March 27, 2015

The University of Tennessee announced today that it has terminated its employment agreement with head men’s basketball coach Donnie Tyndall for cause. The decision was made based on information the university received during the NCAA’s investigation of another institution. The university concluded that Tyndall is highly likely to be found responsible for serious (e.g., Level I and/or Level II) violations of NCAA rules that occurred during his tenure as head men’s basketball coach at another institution. “It is disappointing that we have to take this action,” said Vice Chancellor and Director of Athletics Dave Hart. “It is highly likely that Coach Tyndall will face significant penalties at the conclusion of the NCAA’s infractions process. We believe that this decision is in the best interests of the University of Tennessee.”

 


Cumberland County Board of Education meeting
Peg Broadcasting News Friday March 27, 2015

A lengthy agenda was before the Board of Education on Thursday. Board members heard from legal counsel regarding a lawsuit filed by Hamilton County and 6 other school systems, against the state. The suit claims that the state has breached its duty under the Tennessee Constitution to provide a system of free public education for the children of this state. Counselor Patton was not asking the local board to participate, but wanted to bring it to their attention. The board did not move on the issue, but reserved judgment for a later time. In other action, board members voted to instruct the Athletic Committee to pursue the creation of a county-wide Athletic Director position.
