• Knox County Schools has a strong partnership with the National Institute for Excellence in Teaching (NIET). Adrian Burnett has been working with an NIET Senior Specialist since 2019 to help us grow our staff and develop student ownership. We are excited to continue to work with a Senior Specialist for the 2021 - 2022 school year. Below are a few of the initiatives we have started through this partnership:

    • Success Criteria
    • Learning Intentions
    • Ready to Learn Behaviors


    Ask your student the following questions to hear first-hand their progress toward ownership of their learning!

    1. What is your role as a learner in class?
    2. What did you learn today in __________ (subject)?
    3. How do you know you learned it?
