Welcome to Polk County, Tennessee- home of the beautiful Ocoee, Conasauga, and Hiwassee Rivers and the Cherokee National Forest! Polk County is located in the southeastern corner of Tennessee.
We are very proud of our students, our schools, and our communities. Our district consists of 3 elementary schools, 1 middle school, and 2 high schools. We serve a population of 2,800 students.
2014 Parent Portal
Polk County Schools will be switching to a new student management system package this school year. Therefore, our old parent portal accounts will no longer be active. We will be introducing a brand new and improved parent portal early in the school year.
TN School Readiness Model
The TN School Readiness Model is intended to raise awareness about the role of families, communities, and schools collectively to create a nurturing environment to support children's health, development, and education starting from birth. The Kid Central TN website is designed to connect families with information about children's education, development, and health accessed by your zip code. For more information about the website, click here.
Parents, if you would like more information about SchoolReach, our automated notification system, please visit the SchoolReach link under the Parents/Students menu at the upper right.
