KCS shows increases in student achievement

“Our students continue to make solid gains against universally high academic standards. The hard work of our students, teachers, staff, parents and community continues to be reflected in our promising achievement outcomes. While our results are predominantly very positive, we must also remember there is much work still to do in order to provide an excellent education for each and every child in the Knox County Schools.” 
Dr. Jim McIntyre
Superintendent
Knox County Schools.

“Our students continue to make solid gains against universally high academic standards,” said Dr. Jim McIntyre, Superintendent of the Knox County Schools.  “The hard work of our students, teachers, staff, parents and community continues to be reflected in our promising achievement outcomes. While our results are predominantly very positive, we must also remember there is much work still to do in order to provide an excellent education for each and every child in the Knox County Schools.”
