The Tennessean, .... The board voted 4-4 three times to either defer, deny or approve
KIPP's elementary school. It then voted 4-4 again on whether to approve
KIPP's middle school.
With no clear majority and no action taken on the two charters, the state will take control of the schools and be able to issue the charter after Nov. 23. The district had 30 days to make a decision on the schools.
Board Chair Sharon Gentry, Amy Frogge, Will Pinkston and Jill Speering voted in favor of taking no action. (link)
