Detailed Work Session Notes
January 20-26, 2019 has been designated "School Board Appreciation" Week in Tennessee. To commemorate the event, Mr. Andy True, Assistant Superintendent - Administration, recognized and thanked Board members for their valuable service to Kingsport City Schools and the Kingsport community. The members of the KCS Board of Education are:
- Mrs. Carrie Upshaw, Board President
- Mr. Todd Golden, Board Vice President
- Mr. Eric Hyche
- Mrs. Susan Lodal
- Dr. Karen Reed-Wright
School board members determine a vision for education, design a structure to achieve that vision, assure schools are accountable to the local community, and advocate for continuous improvement in student learning. Board members attend many meetings and school functions, review reports, agendas, proposals and other information, and make a variety of difficult decisions. School Board Appreciation Week is a chance for the community to thank these individuals for their unselfish giving of time and service to Kingsport students, families, and educators.
To honor KCS Board members who donate their time and efforts to ensure Kingsport students have a world-class education, Board members were presented a gift bag of various KCS and Kingsport items. Additionally, a book will be presented to each KCS school for placement in their school library on behalf of the Board.
