Learning for a Lifetime
Welcome to Polk County, Tennessee,
home of the beautiful Ocoee, Conasauga, and Hiwassee Rivers and the Cherokee National Forest!
We are located in the southeastern corner of Tennessee in the heart of the Tennessee Overhill area.
Thank you for visiting the official website of the Polk County Department of Education.
We are very proud of our students, our schools, and our communities. Our district consists of 3 elementary schools, 1 middle school, 2 high schools, and a virtual learning academy for grades K-10.
Copper Basin Elementary and South Polk Elementary will be closed Thursday and Friday, January 14th and 15th for cleaning due to the high number of COVID cases among staff. All other schools will remain open on the A/B schedule. All schools will be on the A/B schedule again next week. Monday January 18 is MLK Holiday- no remote learning.
