What is preschool screening?
Preschool screening is a free service offered by the Knox County Public Schools in collaboration with the KCEOC Head Start Program and is one way of finding and seeking help for preschool age children with special needs.
KCEOC classroom transportation services are provided when possible. Knox County Preschool provides transportation services to students residing in the Knox County School District.
