• In 2015, the Board of Education approved the construction of two new middle schools in Knox County. Those schools are under construction in the Gibbs and Hardin Valley communities and are scheduled to open in August 2018. A memorandum by Interim Superintendent Buzz Thomas, dated Feb. 24, 2017, was presented to the Board of Education proposing preliminary middle school attendance zone modifications for the two new schools. The plan also addressed other middle school zoning concerns that may exist in the areas affected by the development of the two new school attendance zones.
