Knox Community School Board Hires Technology Coach

Chris Ross

The Knox Community School Board created a new technical position and filled it at their meeting this week. Superintendent A.J. Gappa gives us the details on the new position.

“This year, we had a teacher retire from the Middle School in the Industrial Tech area and rather than fill that position, the Administration felt that with the One-to-One Computer Program which we have undertaken, we would best be served by a teacher/coach that could go in and help teachers with the computers and the programs and different objects that they could use in their classroom,” he said.

“Chris Ross, who has been the Guidance Counselor at the Middle School for a number of years, has been transferred into that newly created teacher/coach position. Because of that transfer, the Middle School is now taking applications for a Guidance Counselor at the Middle School. Very soon they will be interviewing candidates for that position.”
