Goals ahead for New Tech School in Clarksville

District expects to wrap up some milestones this month



The board also unanimously passed a new health insurance plan for employees.

Knott said slight increases will be noticed in life insurance, accidental death and dismemberment and disability coverage. But she said though rates for health insurance are the same, employees will see the increase in their costs.

She said last year, district reserves helped offset the increase it realized. Now without that money and costs staying the same, it’s passed onto the employees.

Jim Bemiss, board member, said though the board had different plans to choose from, the results were pretty much the same no matter what it approved.

“I’d just like to reiterate that we had no choice,” Bemiss said. “This is not someplace where we’re loaded with options. When we heard the options, there were no options, so we arrived at this under some duress.”
