Excellence for Every Child
Through the establishment of personal relationships between community leaders and educators, the goal of Partners in Education is to create a spirit of involvement that has a positive impact on Knox County. This involvement helps develop the local school environment into a powerful educational setting where community members are working actively with students.
Partners in Education encourages community leaders to take a greater interest in the Knox County School System. This program opens school doors to the community while providing an opportunity to better prepare students to succeed in an ever-changing world.
The Knox County School System seeks to partner with organizations that have a desire to contribute to the education of the 57,000 students across the district. Some areas of the community that are already participating include: businesses (both local and national), civic clubs, government agencies (federal, state and local), professional organizations, churches, organizations at colleges and universities and nonprofit agencies.
This list is not restrictive, however. The Knox County School System will gladly welcome any group of concerned community leaders who want to invest their time, talent and resources in students.
