• KCS Vision for Professional Learning


    The Knox County Schools Professional Learning Framework reflects the guiding principles that we believe are foundational to providing a meaningful and impactful professional learning experience for Knox County educators. This framework will enable us to direct and monitor our professional learning systems and structures, balance the needs of the district, our students, and our individual educators, and maintain our commitment to invest in our people as learners and leaders.
