Is a $1.1 million multi-sport training complex on its way to Warren County High School?Such a facility was among nearly $6 million in spending requests outlined Monday by Director of Schools Bobby Cox in a presentation to the county’s Education Committee. Among other major projects, Cox proposed spending $3 million for updating and expanding Irving College School at its present site, and spending $800,000 for a major upgrade of the Bobby Ray gym.The spending request also included a 1.5 percent pay raise for teachers and an extra $500 for classified employees. In addition, Cox asked for five more school resource officers, bringing the total to 10, so an SRO could be placed full-time at every school.
