One of Knox County Schools’ greatest yearly pledge drives is in progress and surprisingly more cash is returning to the understudies and schools this year. The yearly coupon book pledge drive offers limits adding up to many dollars to regional cafés, stores, and attractions.
The books are $10 and the maximum from every deal will go to the school of the understudy who sells it. Coupon books can be bought from understudies or straightforwardly at any Knox County school. The pledge drive runs now through Sept. 29.
“The coupon book pledge drive is an incredible method to offer help straightforwardly to KCS schools and to construct a positive culture for Knox County understudies,” Superintendent Bob Thomas said. “We’re energized that the full $10 price tag will currently be coordinated to schools, and we’re thankful for the understudies, families, and colleagues who are supporting the current year’s mission.”
Three virtual schools were greenlit for Knox County Schools after the Tennessee Department of Education endorsed 29 new ones for the 2021-22 school year. There will be one each for rudimentary, center, and secondary school understudies in Knox County. The new school year’s virtual choices will be fairly downsized. In contrast to the last school year, the impending school year will see the three separate online schools that understudies needed to move out of their last school to partake. Limit is additionally more restricted.
The school locale had deferred its enlistment window for virtual learning in April while authorities anticipated the state’s choice on its arrangement for virtual learning. Web based learning had turned into an imperative part for understudies and staff last school year in the midst of returning schools during the continuous COVID-19 pandemic. A huge number of understudies had taken a crack at web based learning on account of the school area giving Chromebooks and virtual guidance.
A year prior, the region started carrying out its enlistment to give Chromebooks to understudies in front of the 2020-21 school year, when both face to face and virtual learning choices were advertised. Presently, with virtual learning schools given the go-ahead, understudies going to KCS online who had enlisted and enrolled back in May will go to classes that way. Kindergartners were not qualified to apply. More data on the state’s endorsement of the 29 new virtual schools can be found here.
