• COVID Dashboard

    Knox County Schools is working hard to protect its approximately 60,000 students and 8,000 employees from COVID-19, but it’s important to recognize that there will likely be positive cases at many of our schools during the school year. KCS and the Knox County Health Department will be working together to implement contact tracing when members of our school communities test positive. The district is committed to providing timely information to individuals who have potentially been exposed to COVID-19. At the same time, we must comply with state and federal mandates – including the Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act (FERPA) and the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act of 1996 (HIPAA) – to protect the privacy of our students and employees. With that in mind, we will only be able to share limited data about cases in our district at this time. This information, as well as the metrics KCS and KCHD are monitoring, will be available on the district’s dashboard below and updated daily after 4 p.m. 

    Due to Fall Break, the Thanksgiving holiday, Winter Break, and Spring Break, COVID data was not collected therefore some data may be missing from the graphs.
