The board held two learning sessions during the meeting. The first learning session was an Educational Learning Session which featured representatives from the Knoxville Boosters, Knoxville Music Boosters, Knoxville Police Department, Marion County Sheriff’s Office, Knoxville Alumni Association, Marion County Public Health, and Knoxville Scholarship Foundation. The second learning session was a Community Learning Session which featured Knoxville community leaders. Both sessions featured questions on what the Knoxville School District could do to help improve learning for students in the district. Attendees of both sessions took turns answering the featured questions with responses being noted by school board members who will use the information during another learning session in January.
