Knox School Board Members Favor Superintendent Buy-Out

Knoxville (WVLT) - Knox County Schools Superintendent Doctor Charles Lindsey could soon be out of a job.

According to The News Sentinel, a third of Knox County School Board members say they are leaning towards buying out Lindsey's contract.

School board members say they expect documentation on the cost of the proposed buyout by Tuesday's board workshop.
