KNOXVILLE, Tenn. (WVLT) – Knox County Schools Superintendent Bob Thomas announced Friday that KCS families will have the option to enroll their students in virtual or in person learning for the 2021-22 school year.
Parents will have from April 15 through April 23 to decide which option is best for their children. Whichever choice parents make will be for the entire 2021-22 school year.
“Families who want their students to enroll in virtual learning will have to meet certain prerequisites,” KCS said in a Facebook post.
Kindergarten students will not be eligible for virtual learning.
KCS says students who choose the in person learning option and teachers will not be required to be vaccinated, however employees are encouraged to get the COVID-19 vaccine “as a way to mitigate the spread of the virus and to protect our school communities.” The school board has a policy on face covering that will be discussed at the next board meeting on April 7.
