Knox County Schools have specific zones set up for school attendance. Knox County students must attend the school in the zone where their legal parents/guardians reside unless granted an approved transfer. If a parent would like for their child(ren) to attend a school outside his or her zone beginning in the upcoming school year, a transfer must be granted. An approved transfer is valid through terminal grade of the school, (K-5, 6-8, 9-12). If approved, parents will be responsible for transportation and shall accompany their student(s) to the school for enrollment/registration.
A student transfer may be recommended for revocation for good and sufficient reasons, such as:
- lack of academic progress
During the school year students may also be placed in a school outside of their zoned school by the Superintendent for the following reasons:
- welfare of the student
Note: Requests for consideration of administrative placement must be made in writing and submitted to Brian Hartsell via email, US Mail or hand delivery. Administrative placements will be approved to a school that can accommodate the student. (space, programming, staffing, etc.)
