    Knox County Schools is in the process of establishing the operating and capital plan budgets for the 2024-25 school year. Last year, the Knox County community elevated the following funding priorities:

    • Invest in high-quality instructional materials
    • Invest in staff salary and benefits
    • Invest in opportunities for college and career exposure for students
    • Invest in expanded pre-k opportunities
    • Invest in improvements to existing facilities

    KCS is committed to continuing to invest in these funding priorities through the 2024-25 school year, but we want to know what current and potential funding priorities are most important to you.
    Additionally, as part of the Tennessee Investment in Student Achievement (TISA), KCS is required to submit an annual accountability report to the Tennessee Department of Education. The public is invited to review this report and to provide comments on the funding goals.


    You can submit your comments in our annual budget survey, which is provided below, between October 16 and October 31. Your input is critical to ensuring we develop a budget that meets the needs of our KCS students, families, and staff.
