Next Steps

  • On April 29, 2017, Knox County Schools Special Education Department in collaboration with STEP (Support and Training for Exceptional Parents) and Great Schools Partnership will host the “Next Steps” Transition Conference. This FREE event will encourage students and their families to be proactive in planning for “life after high school”. This event will present regional programs, agencies, and businesses that support our students and promote growth. This event will allow students, parents, and teachers to find answers to their questions, to make connections and to continue to plan for the future.

    Our goal is to provide the tools and information necessary to empower individuals with disabilities to successfully transition from high school into adulthood. The information and resources that will be provided at the event will assist in decision making for people of all abilities and which can lead to a more successful and independent life.
