The debate about sports programs for Jackson County schools continues. Jackson County Public Schools offers school-based and district sports at the middle school level at the same time, and school officials said it is putting a strain on resources. Some community members have called for district-only sports, while others favor school-based teams. And some said to keep both. The school board will make the final decision at its Jan. 24 meeting at Smokey Mountain Elementary School, and that decision will go into effect next school year.
