KCS Schedules Strategic Plan Community Meetings

Knox County Schools is currently in year four of a five-year strategic plan. Seeking input from the community on the contents of the next strategic plan, which will be a three-year plan, Knox County Schools has scheduled nine community meetings—one for each school district—in January and February. The meetings are scheduled for the following dates and locations:

  • District 5: Tuesday, Jan. 9 at West Valley Middle School
  • District 4: Thursday, Jan. 11 at West High School
  • District 1: Tuesday, Jan. 16 at Vine Middle School
  • District 8: Thursday, Jan. 18 at Carter Middle School
  • District 7: Monday, Jan. 22 at Powell Middle School
  • District 2: Tuesday, Jan. 23 at Whittle Springs Middle School
  • District 6: Tuesday, Jan. 30 at Northwest Middle School
  • District 9: Thursday, Feb. 1 at South-Doyle High School
  • District 3: Monday, Feb. 5 at Cedar Bluff Middle School


Each meeting will be held from 6 to 8 p.m. and consist of a brief introduction and explanation of the process followed by a breakout discussion led by volunteer facilitators and a report back in the main meeting room.


Though the meetings are designated as district meetings, each is open to the entire public. If any meeting is cancelled due to inclement weather, one make-up meeting will be scheduled in February.


BOE District 4 Representative Lynne Fugate is leading the Strategic Plan Committee. Of the process, she has said, “It is important for Knox County Schools to know where we want to go. The strategic plan will help us determine how best to get there and what is most important to the families we serve.”
