Teachers in the Knox Community School Corporation are busy this week preparing for the start of school.
Professional development activities have been going on in the past couple of days at all buildings. These type of activities are not held within the regular school year as 180 full days of instruction need to be held throughout the school year. To comply, these chances for teachers are held prior to the start of school.
As a part of the agreement with the teachers, school is dismissed a half hour early on Fridays throughout the school year to make up the time spent in professional development.
School begins for Knox students on Tuesday, Aug. 13.
