Taxpayer Dollars Never Made It To Knox County's Classroom

Over the last two to three years, Knox County Schools has expended millions of dollars in a computer system to handle its payroll. Spending money that could have and should have been spent in the classroom. Instead Knox County has spent money on a Lawson software program that today is not functioning for it intended use, cutting Knox County Schools payroll.

The School Board was warned by their former Superintendent that the system would not work. But, still the board directed its former Superintendent to head into a computer system that literally drained dollars out of our classrooms.
