A MESSAGE FROM

SUPERINTENDENT

DR. MOORHOUSE

Greetings! Thank you for taking time to read our Kingsport City Schools Annual Report. 
We are excited to share this review of the great things that have been accomplished
by the students and staff of KCS during the 2018-19 school year.
Every day, we work toward our vision to inspire, cultivate, and impact the lives of our
students and the Kingsport community. That collective outlook is shared by every Kingsport City Schools
stakeholder that brings passion, expertise, and a dedication for student excellence into our schools. It is
through this collective vision that the talents and skills of every child are maximized, providing the environment
where all have the ability to meet his or her greatest potential. Not only does this provide the greatest return
on the generous investments provided by our community, but it serves to maintain the high level of positive
impact that our students and staff have on our society.
As always, I invite and encourage you to be an active part of the Kingsport City Schools community. That
partnership is vital to the success of our students and is critical to KCS being able to reach our vision as a
district. Thank you for your interest in learning more about the phenomenal things being accomplished by
our students and staff… We are excited to share our work with you!

ICNUSRTRRICUUCLTUIMON&

The focus of educators throughout Kingsport City Schools is to identify the
strengths and needs of each KCS student, understand the academic goals
that are to be accomplished, and work to develop high-quality learning
experiences that ensure students reach their highest academic potential.
The KCS Curriculum and Instruction staff leads and supports this work by
focusing on four critical questions: 
• What is it we expect our students to master?
• How will we know when our students have mastered the content?
• How will we respond when our students have not mastered the content?
• H ow will we respond when our students have mastered the content?
The goal of all KCS educators is an academic program that is individualized
to meet the needs of every KCS student, providing the level of support
necessary in each case to help students succeed.  A key priority is to provide
all students with a guaranteed and viable curriculum, understanding that
regardless of the school or environment, all children must have equal access
to superior teaching and learning experiences that ensure learning can
occur at its highest level.

CAREER
PATHWAYS

The key focus of Kingsport City Schools is to inspire passion,
cultivate purpose, and impact possibilities. To fully accomplish this,
it is critical for students to identify and cultivate their strengths so
that skills and passions can be developed to their full extent. To
meet these expectations, KCS offers a variety of career pathways,
which represent a collection of programs and services that help
students connect with high-demand careers. These pathways
develop technical, academic, and employability skills through
ongoing education and real-world training.
High school students in KCS are offered a variety
of opportunities, such as early college credit,
Advanced Placement (AP) courses, industry
certifications, and work-based learning. Through
partnerships with institutions such as Northeast
State Community College and East Tennessee
State University, students receive college-level
instruction and earn college credit. Offering
24 AP courses allows students to experience
college-level rigor while still in high school.
Work-based learning opportunities provide
real-world experience in careers of interest.
These opportunities provide increased pathways
for all students to identify, demonstrate, and
grow individual work-ready skills that best
prepare them for life after high school.

WORK-BASED
LEARNING

The Kingsport City Schools Work-Based Learning program provides
an opportunity for high school juniors and seniors to work in a
paid or unpaid internship with local businesses and organizations.
These placements connect the student’s focused elective with a
career interest, while also earning school credit. The 2018-19 school
year was the first year for the program, with multiple students
participating and earning credits toward graduation, as well as
valuable workplace experience.
Work-Based Learning partners included Bays Mountain Park, Cherry
Point Animal Hospital, Kingsport City Schools,
the KCS Technology Department, the Kingsport
District Attorney’s Office, Patterson Homes,
Rainbow’s End Floral, the Regional Center for
Advanced Manufacturing, and Summit Marketing.
Participating students had the opportunity
to take part in real-world learning and work
experiences, such as agriculture, working in local
courtrooms, teaching, news writing, and completing
technology, computer, and IT work.
Additional industry partners and mentors are
always being sought across all industry sectors
to further expand the Work-Based Learning
program. If you are involved in a business or
organization that has an interest in participating
or learning more, please contact D-B Work-
Based Learning Coordinator Claire Arbaugh at
[email protected] or (423) 378-8469 for more
information.

TECHNOLOGY

The Kingsport City Schools focus on providing cutting-edge technology
to students and staff provides the foundation not only for a highly
engaging learning environment, but also the platform for efficient
business operations and communication. The district’s 1:1 device
program in grades 4-12 provides all students a technology device to
access a world of educational opportunities, while a commitment to
high-quality infrastructure further supports academic initiatives for all
students.
During the 2018-19 school year, multiple improvements were made
to serve students and staff in their technology use. A new firewall
was installed to provide more robust usage monitoring and to protect
district data. New virtual servers were utilized to
improve efficiency and reduce costs. A new Help
Desk system was implemented to better serve
student and staff needs, while new interactive
panels were installed at schools across the district
to increase educational opportunities.
At its core, all technology initiatives focus on the
key district priority of providing the best and most
innovative tools available to meet our instructional
and operational goals. These efforts provide the
environment necessary for the highest level of
technology usage across all of Kingsport City
Schools.

ARTS
EDUCATION

The development of the whole child is central to the mission of
Kingsport City Schools, understanding that all children have a wide
range of talents and abilities to be developed, both inside and outside
the classroom. The KCS commitment to arts education seeks to
foster these talents by exposing children to visual and performance
arts, music, and drama through in-school courses and extracurricular
activities. These efforts are supported by a deep level of community
support, resulting in world-class experiences and achievements by
students at all levels.
During the 2018-19 school year, KCS students received accolades at the
local, state, and national level in areas such as drama, music, and art.
Dobyns-Bennett High School performing arts students included eight
All-State Band, seven All-State Orchestra, and five All-State Chorus
members. Kingsport was recognized as a Best Community for Music
Education by the National Association of Music Merchants. The D-B
Varsity Choir was invited to sing in the prestigious Windy City Festival
in Chicago, including a solo performance on the stage of the Chicago
Symphony Hall. Additionally, the D-B Chamber Choir was one of only
12 choirs in the United States selected by blind audition to participate
in the upcoming 2020 Music for All National Choral Festival in
Indianapolis. The D-B Competitive Marching Band
was named the Class AAA National Champions at
the Bands of America Grand Nationals competition,
having earned finalist and semi-finalist status over
the past several years. The D-B Band is one of a
very few organizations nation-wide to receive the
American Bandmasters Association’s Sudler Flag
and Sudler Shield awards. The band will perform
in the prestigious 2020 Rose Parade in Pasadena,
CA, in a fourth appearance by invitation.

SOCIAL &
EMOTIONAL
LEARNING

Beyond ensuring the best possible environment for academic learning,
Kingsport City Schools makes a focused effort to provide the necessary
social and emotional support needed for the highest level of student
mental health. School counselors are in place at elementary, middle,
and high schools to provide a variety of programming to meet the
social-emotional needs of students. In addition to the focus provided
by these school counselors, administrators, and staff, KCS also partners
with outside mental health agencies to provide counselors at each
school.
Staff at all KCS schools are being trained in restorative practices, trauma
informed practices, and ACEs (Adverse Childhood Experiences). This
knowledge and best-practice awareness provides
staff with the most current information to identify,
address, and support students’ emotional needs.
Additionally, Cora Cox Academy has been identified
as a Trauma-Informed School, receiving specialized
training from state experts.
All schools have also engaged in a specific focus on
suicide prevention, taking part in activities through
out the year and through the #IWontBeSilent
awareness campaign. Communication is also
ongoing with mental health specialists to address
high-need situations as they occur.
These efforts are critical to help ensure that all
students can reach the highest levels of mental
and emotional health. Only by achieving this goal
can children have the best chance to succeed, both
academically and socially.

ATHLETICS

With a tradition that includes some of the most successful high school
athletic programs in the United States, Kingsport City Schools athletes
pursue excellence both on and off the playing field. Development
of the complete student athlete is a priority, focusing on character,
sportsmanship, and competitive skill. These efforts have resulted in
accomplishments such as having the winningest baseball and basketball
programs in the country, the second-most winning football program in
Tennessee, and numerous state and local championships in a variety of
sports.
The 2018-19 school year was one of special note, with many successful
achievements and multiple state championship appearances. The
Dobyns-Bennett Girls Golf, Tennis, and Volleyball teams all advanced to
the state tournament, with Tennis standout Lainey
Hill receiving All-State honors and D-B golfer Isabella
van der Biest winning the TSSAA Large School State
Championship. D-B Wrestling and Boys Basketball
won conference and district championships, while
All-State Girls Basketball senior Courtney Whitson
finished her D-B career as the program’s all-time
leading scorer and rebounder. D-B Baseball also
completed another successful season with a Big 7
regular season championship.
While success at the high school level is evident, this
passion for excellence finds its roots at Sevier and
Robinson Middle Schools. Coaches and athletes
work hard to build a culture of greatness in all sports,
which resulted in high levels of success at the middle
school level this year. Continuing this tradition of
excellence truly drives our “One Tribe” philosophy, as
athletes work to represent both themselves and their
school with pride at all times. Roll Tribe!

STUDENT
SERVICES

Kingsport City Schools Student Services focuses on providing a range
of supports that provide students the best possible opportunity for
academic and social success. The combined efforts of school and
district attendance staff, school nursing, coordinated school health,
the KCS Family Resource Center, and the Homeless Education program
serve to ensure that students have what is needed to be at school and
ready to learn. This includes extensive work with students, schools,
and families regarding enrollment, zoning, and tuition.
Mental health and safety are key focus areas for KCS Student Services.
Working with school counselors across the district, staff addresses
the social-emotional needs of students in all KCS schools. Student
Services also leads the district’s Safety Task Force
that addresses safety planning and reviews
safety events, while also coordinating the work
of community agencies such as the Kingsport
Police Department, Kingsport Fire Department,
emergency management, and mental health
agencies. Regular assessments of KCS facilities
and processes take place to analyze district safety
protocols and areas of improvement.
The Student Services Department has also been
involved in future facilities development for the
district, focusing on zoning and transportation
planning. As KCS moves forward with the move
to a new middle school facility and transitions
out of an existing elementary school, this work
will be critical to ensure smooth operations and
clear communication to students and families. It
is yet another way that Students Services works to
provide operational effectiveness and service to
the KCS community.

SCHOOL HEALTH
SERVICES /
WELLNESS

Good health and wellness is critical for students to reach their full
academic potential. The Kingsport City Schools health services program
is a specialized, education-based program that protects and promotes
student health, facilitates optimal student development, and advances
academic success. In KCS, a strong focus on physical health and well-
being serves to ensure that all students have access to highly-trained
medical professionals for both regular and emergency healthcare. For
over 20 years, each KCS school has had a nurse available to meet student
needs. During the 2018-19 school year, those professionals performed
over 55,000 nursing procedures with a return-to-class rate of 96%.
This also marked the 6th year for KCS students to take advantage of
telemedicine visits, providing convenient access to physicians and nurse
practitioners via online technology without having
to leave school.
Student and staff wellness is also emphasized
through the coordinated school health program.
These efforts included over 3,000 student health
screenings, providing appropriate referrals for
follow-up care with medical providers. Partnerships
with community agencies also provided for the
distribution of free eyeglasses and other needed
resources to hundreds of students. Coordinated
School Health assisted in providing mental
health counseling in elementary schools and at
Cora Cox Academy, as well as providing sets of
evidence-based counseling curriculum. Since its
inception, Coordinated School Health has assisted
in KCS receiving over $1 million in grants and in-
kind donations to benefit the health and wellness of
students, staff, and the Kingsport community.

SAFETY &
SECURITY

Without question, there is no more important issue to Kingsport
City Schools than the safety and security of our students and staff.
Continually analyzing district safety processes, protocols, and the
physical environment is critical to ensuring that the safest possible
environment is maintained. During the 2018-19 school year, KCS
partnered with local and state safety experts to review industry best-
practices and analyze the current district safety plan and individual
safety-related incidents. An ongoing partnership with the Kingsport
Police Department, Kingsport Fire Department, and other key first
responders allows KCS to refine safety protocols and address areas of
improvement.
KCS utilized over $100,000 of available state
and local funding to make several safety-related
improvements to staff and the district’s physical
school environment. Additional KPD School
Resource Officers were added to the district’s safety
efforts. School entries were made more secure by
adding additional buzz-to-enter systems, safety
window coatings, and secure reception windows.
A full safety audit was also completed, reviewing
all KCS schools to evaluate current conditions and
identify areas for improvement.
For Kingsport City Schools, safety is never a
finish line. There will always be ways to improve
and make schools safer and more secure. KCS is
dedicated to this work and committed to ensuring
that all students and staff can learn and work in the
safest possible environment.

SCHOOL
NUTRITION
SERVICES

Kingsport City Schools School Nutrition Services (SNS) takes great
effort to provide healthy and appetizing food options to students
and staff.   On average, 2,000 breakfasts and 4,000 lunches are
prepared and served each school day, with thousands of additional
meals and snacks served in various programs when school is not in
session.  In total, almost one million meals are served to Kingsport’s
children each year by KCS nutrition staff. Six KCS schools utilize
funding from the Community Eligibility Provision program to
provide all students at those schools meals at no cost. This program
currently runs through the end of the 2019-20 school year.

While striving to provide quality food options, SNS staff members
also work at all times to maintain the safest and
healthiest possible environments.   During the
2018-19 school year, all KCS cafeterias received
a perfect score of 100 on a health inspection
performed by the Tennessee Department of
Health, reflecting the deep commitment to
excellence by SNS, maintenance, and custodial
staff.   These efforts make it possible for all
students to have their nutritional needs met so
they can be best prepared to pursue academic,
artistic, and athletic excellence.

EARLY
CHILDHOOD

For almost 400 young Kingsport children, Kingsport City Schools
Early Childhood programs provide high-quality care and learning
experiences that best prepare these young students for school and
life success. Children from six weeks to five years of age take part
in paid childcare experiences such as the Early Childhood Learning
Center infant class, toddler class, and Pre-K class. Additionally, early
intervention special education classes are offered beginning at
age three for students with identified special needs. State-funded
voluntary Pre-K classes are also offered for children who turn four
by August 15th. All KCS Pre-K classes are fully inclusive, with school
readiness as the primary focus.
A variety of highly-trained professionals make
up the Early Childhood staff, including certified
teachers, teaching assistants, a speech therapist,
occupational therapists, physical therapists, a
health assistant, and school nutrition personnel.
Together, all are focused on delivering the
mission of the KCS Early Childhood program,
which is to develop a successful future and
strong foundation for all students. By providing
a safe, positive learning environment, every child
has the opportunity for high-quality instruction,
care, guidance, and the support needed to
become a successful and productive student!

FACILITIES &
MAINTENANCE

The tireless work of Kingsport City Schools custodians and
maintenance employees results in a physical setting that features
the safest, cleanest, and best possible environment for students
and staff in which to learn and work. Those efforts directly support
the district’s goal of making schools a safe, appropriate, and
well-maintained place that supports teaching and learning. By
completing thousands of maintenance work orders each year, along
with an extensive ongoing daily cleaning effort, KCS buildings are
among the best-maintained facilities in the region and reflect the
community’s expectation for excellence.
Along with maintaining a high degree of
excellence, a continual focus on energy and
financial savings continues across the district.
During the 2018-19 school year, over $200,000
of savings was realized through the KCS energy
program. Additional financial and equipment
savings are pursued through a preventative
maintenance program, which now includes
equipment in the school nutrition/food service
department. A focus on reviewing and updating
maintenance and custodial equipment and
supplies also aligns with the goal of increased
efficiency and cost savings. All these efforts
serve to align the physical work that takes
place across KCS with the educational goals of
ensuring success for all KCS students and staff.

TRANSPORTATION

Each school day, over 1,800 students begin and end their day with a
ride on a Kingsport City Schools school bus.  The goal of each KCS driver
is to provide safe travel between home and school, ensuring that every
child’s safety and well-being is prioritized.  On average each day, over
40 school buses travel a total of over 2,500 miles across Kingsport. In
total, that’s almost a half-million miles every school year on buses that
contain an important key safety feature… KCS is the only district in our
region to feature seat belts on all school buses.
In addition to the bus routes that take place each morning and
afternoon, KCS buses are in motion all throughout the school day
to help support the educational goals of the
district.  Whether it’s to provide transportation for a
field trip or off-campus activity, or to help students
move between school facilities for academic
reasons, the KCS Transportation Department plays
a vital role in ensuring that all students have access
to the experiences that will help them reach their
individual goals.
