Empowering Voters, Defending Democracy

The League of Women Voters is a nonpartisan, political organization encouraging informed and active participation in government. It influences public policy through education and advocacy.

Citizen's Academy

The Academy is designed for all residents of Knox County, particularly rising leaders of any age or organization, and no previous knowledge of school finance is required.

In the morning, local officials and experienced community leaders will share the basics of budgeting, and the roles of the schools and county government. In the afternoon, may choose from classes on subjects such as the state Basic Education Program formula, the school capital plan for buildings or how to work with school board members. The final session will focus on growing the Knox County Schools budget.

Registration is limited to the first 75 participants so register early. Wle will offer a light breakfast and a sandwich lunch and snacks for a registration fee of $10, with scholarships offered upon request. Park all day under the building for free.
