Contact the Knox Board of Education via web mail

Fort Knox Community Schools
Parents and guardians of students attending Fort Knox Community Schools are invited to contact the Board of Education via its web-based email system.
Established in October 2008, the system aims to inform the board members and the superintendent of specific issues in a timely fashion.
Dr. Frank Calvano, the Kentucky district superintendent, said that the web-mail system would give the board time to address the issues—questions, comments, and concerns—before the next monthly board meeting.
“All board members will see the emails,” he said.
Calvano also said student sponsors could use the web page link to submit a proposed agenda item.
“We prefer use of the email system so we can prepare to answer at the board meeting.”
Using the system would not replace public participation at a board meeting, he said, “but the board might have to get back to them the subsequent month rather than being able to answer questions immediately.”
