Board Policies

NEW IN 2018-2019

Starting in August 2018, we are contracting with policy experts at the Tennessee School Board Association (TSBA) to review, update, and host our school board policies.  This work will take several months as they systematically review each of our policies, make recommendations, and then go through a review and approval process with our local board.  During this transition period, you can expect to find some policy documents that link out to TSBA and some that link to our district site.  Thank you in advance for your patience during this process.  Should questions arise, please do not hesitate to contact the board secretary or director of schools at (865) 982-7121.  Thank you!
