Dr. James Atkins, Director of Schools

Welcome to Grainger County Schools' website.  I hope you find it useful.  Please feel free to contact us and let us know of information that the website should add.  This website should be a great resource for parents, students, and employees. 

It is such an honor to serve as your Director of Schools.  I will never be too busy to talk to an employee, parent, or student.  Our school system exist for the sole purpose of educating and supporting our students.  We are very fortunate to have an exceptional faculty and staff.  It takes everyone in the school system to make a success.  Our employees truly care about the students. 

During these COVID-19 times, the status of each school may change multiple times.  In fact, it may vary from school to school.  It is possible that some schools will be operating at normal schedule whereas others may be all virtual.  Through December 31, 2020, we will continue to have Virtual Wednesdays.
