Knox County School Superintendent Dr. Jim McIntyre updates Knox County Commission on safety and security in our public school system following last week’s tragedy in CT.

He issued the following statement last week: “Our thoughts and prayers are with the children and families of Newtown, Connecticut today as they grapple with this horrendous tragedy. The safety of our children is our highest priority in the Knox County Schools every single day. Our community should know that we work proactively and collaboratively with the outstanding law enforcement agencies in Knoxville, and with our dedicated staff to provide for the safety of our students and the security of our schools.”
