Welcome to the Family and Community Engagement Department at Knox County Schools. Communication between school and home, parent and teacher, is very important to us. You may use Parent Portal to follow your child's progress on a daily basis, or use School Messenger (formerly Parent Link) to keep informed of school and district announcements via telephone, web, or email. We encourage you to contact our department if we can be of any assistance!
