Getting back on track: Clarksville Schools board feels better about New Tech direction with town



“Everyone is aware of budget restraints,” Wilson said. “Everyone that is involved with these discussions is trying to find solutions that will work for everyone.”

Wilson said he thinks the Redevelopment Commission will schedule a public meeting strictly talking about New Tech in the next two weeks. 

Though the district’s timeline for a decision on a site is nearly two weeks off schedule, it’s moving on with other pieces of the New Tech timeline.

The district’s administration will meet with its bond counsel on April 16 to talk about financing options for the New Tech facility. Knott said they’ll explore every option available to them and financing structures for each of them.

The board also reviewed a job description for the New Tech High School principal. The position will require the candidate to head the design team and launch the school once it opens, two responsibilities Knott said are unusual for a principal.

Knott said she’s not sure when interviews and hiring will happen, but hopes to set the application deadline for the job at May 3.
