One way the Bledsoe County Board of Education is hoping will entice teachers to apply for jobs here, and retain its current staff, is the addition of a daycare. Discussion about the possibility Monday evening, April 18, led to the approval to pursue adding a daycare facility within the Pikeville Elementary school building.
Dr. Kristy Walker informed the Board a survey was conducted of its current teaching staff with many teachers indicating they would like for a school system employee daycare being made available. She said the survey indicated as many as 24 children, infant to age four, would utilize the daycare if offered.
