Knox County Schools will continue to offer two learning options in the semester that begins on Jan. 5. Students can utilize in-person, on-campus instruction with additional safety measures, or they can enroll in our virtual learning program.

Any changes to your child’s current learning placement must be made between October 26-November 6. This must be completed no later than 3:30 pm on November 6. Families will receive an email on October 26 for each student enrolled in KCS that contains their Student ID#.

1. If you want your child to remain in his/her current form of instruction – you should do nothing.  Your child will remain in their current placement.

2. If you want a change of placement for your child for spring semester, you must complete a request for the change form.  For families with multiple children enrolled in KCS, you will need to complete this process for each child you wish to change.
