Kentucky Commissioner of Education Terry Holliday has ruled that the status quo will remain in the Knox County – Corbin Independent Schools fight over cancellation of the long-standing student transfer agreement.
All students currently attending schools out of district can continue to do so for another full school term.
Meanwhile, the districts have been directed to seek mediation of the dispute.
At this time neither district’s board of education has decided whether to appeal the commissioner’s decision to the Kentucky Board of Education. Such an appeal could be made by either party.
