Red Bank Joins Signal Mountain Looking at Forming a City School System
Red Bank (WDEF) Another city looks into severing ties with the Hamilton County Department of Education.
Red Bank commissioners plan to form a committee to look into setting up a city school system. The move comes after Signal Mountain leaders voted last week to launch their own a study committee on what would need to be done to break away from Hamilton County Schools.
Things like teacher pay, school buildings, and local oversight need to be explored.
Voters would have to approve the formation of a city school district.
City leaders in East Ridge and Soddy-Daisy have also talked about exploring the idea.
