Not much else there. Gill on leave with pay pending investigation, Lawson on leave without pay. Knox Schools did not elaborate except to say the matters are unrelated.

South-Doyle Middle School involved.

The Tennessee Department of Children's Services has an open investigation at South-Doyle Middle School, the same school where county commissioner Evelyn Gill has been placed on administrative leave, a department spokesman said.

County Commissioner Evelyn

County Commissioner Evelyn Gill, a special education teacher who has been placed on leave from her day job, has a history of undermining colleagues, leaving her classroom to attend public events and mistreating a teacher's assistant to the point that the person resigned, according to school records.
The documents, which date back to August 2016, are part of a disciplinary file kept at South-Doyle Middle School. They were not included in Gill's personnel file in Knox County Schools' central office downtown, which the USA TODAY NETWORK-Tennessee had previously requested and received.

The school district released the school file last week in response to a public records request from the USA TODAY NETWORK-Tennessee after a reporter learned about the separate disciplinary files kept at schools.
