Knoxville (WVLT) -- Less than a week before board members vote on a controversial plan to re-zone high schools, Knox County's interim superintendent is suggesting more changes.
Dr. Roy Mullins has released a memo in which he urges the board to move as few students as possible, out of the Bearden Zone.
One board member says the superintendent has the right idea, but he's still not sure he'll vote for the plan.
"He didn't make complete changes in the whole plan but he changed parts of it," said Robert Bratton who represents schools in South Knox county on the school board. "I think he went back like you're suppose to and listened to public input and made some changes based on what the public says."
The largest of Dr. Mullins ideas is a grandfather clause that would allow current sixth graders to remain in the same school zone as their older brothers and sisters.
