Tuesday evening, Knox County Schools wrapped up the last of its six insight sessions to get input on its five-year strategic plan.

Austin-East High School hosted the meeting for parents and other concerned community members to offer input on what they want out of the school system.

After six meetings, Superintendent Dr. Jim McIntyre says three themes emerged going forward. Community members want to see continued investment in quality teachers, investment in up-to-date learning facilities and personalized learning opportunities.

He says those themes have been consistent in the previous meetings across Knox County.

"They're emerging across all sort of different cross sections and geography and roles, and all different types of cross sections of people are saying similar types of things which is really interesting," he said.

The school district will have two more feedback sessions in Novermber. Then it will ask the board to formally approve the plan in the spring.
