KNOX CITY—The current plan for schools at Knox City and O’Brien is to offer both remote and on-campus learning for all students beginning Aug. 18, according to Superintendent Colin Howeth.
“We are excited to see our students again in person and look forward to the challenges that will come with the upcoming year,” he said. “I would like to thank the Texas Education Agency, state and local governments and University Interscholastic League for the guidance that has been put in place. While each aspect of this guidance creates challenges for our staff, we will do our part to make sure our students are safe and are provided the best education possible.”
Howeth provided the Knox City/O’Brien Consolidated Independent School District Board of Trustees this update related to the current pandemic in a recent meeting.
The trustees also discussed the 2020-2021 tax rate and set a hearing for Monday, Aug. 31 for the budget.
The trustees approved:
* TASB Risk Management as a primary insurance carrier for auto, property, liability, and workers compensation for the 2020-2021 school year;
* The student and employee handbooks for 2020-21;
* Bids of $150 and $750 from Tim Lewis for trust properties in Knox City.
