Merger team website adds audio, video archive

We're in the process of updating documents and data on our landing page for education news, Schools In Transition, and we'll have links there as well. One definite link will be to the Shelby County website's portal for the schools merger transition commission.

Shelby County Mayor Mark Luttrell's staff has in a very short time period built a functional, useful home for the transition commission, and many members of the commission hope it eventually evolves into a go-to website for all information related to the merger of the county's public schools. Diane Brown, Jenna Stonechipher, Kim Hackney and Steve Shular have seamlessly added support of the commission to their county government duties, and county information technology chief Michael Pachis and his staff have added the necessary technology to the Shelby County Code Enforcement offices so there is archived audio of meetings there.

There is also video available. Last month's session with leaders involved in the Chattanooga-Hamilton County merger is posted on it, so if you missed it, you can view their take on consolidation's impact on their region (three of the panelists had opposed consolidation).
