Knox County Records Management
The KCRM makes archives available to the general
public. In Tennessee, unless a law or regulation states otherwise,
government records must be made available for viewing. There is no
requirement for a "Freedom of Information Act" formal request.
be aware that Records Management fills requests for specific documents.
We are not equipped to be a third-party research organization.
Therefore, it is of great help to know as much as possible when asking
about records. It is usually a good idea to call the office which
created the record and get docket numbers, permit numbers, names, dates,
Records Management stores student records from many Knox
County Schools and schools which were in the Knoxville City school
system. Student records are filed by school, alphabetically, and by last
year of attendance. If a student is currently enrolled, the record is
still in the custody of the school.
Those who left the City of
Knoxville school system prior to high school graduation in 1987 should
contact the Knox County Archives, 865-215-8800. Knoxville City schools
merged with Knox County Schools in 1986/1987.
