Knox gives credit where credit is due

Knox County Public Schools recently amended a 2014 policy in order to remain a competitive employer.


At the October meeting, Superintended Kelly Sprinkles introduced an item to change the current classified salary policy.

“Our current policy for classified employees that come into the district allows them to provide us with information based upon previous employment, and we are allowed to give one for two years experience with the maximum of five. So, if a person is hired into our district, who had worked twenty years in a similar field, under the current policy, the most experience that we could give them would be five years experience,” explained Superintendent Sprinkles. “If we had a teacher come in from another district, and they had twenty years experience, we would give them twenty years experience. So, this has been kind of a discrepancy that’s been in there for a while.”
