Knox County School District Mission Statement

We, the Knox County R-1 Board of Education, administration, and staff believe that ALL students can learn and can achieve mastery of basic skills.  We believe that our purpose is to educate all students to high levels of academic performance while fostering positive growth in social/emotional behaviors and attitudes.  We believe that all other aspects of the school program are secondary to this purpose.

Equipped with this focus we are committed to developing the characteristics of an effective school which are a clear school mission, strong instructional leadership, safe and orderly environment, high expectations and a system to measure achievement impact.  We are life-long learners.
