Knox County Superintendent Announces Retirment Following 2024-25 School Year

Knox County Superintendent Andy Turgeon announced his retirement at the end of the next school year, ending a 22-year run as a school administrator. Turgeon discussed what went into that decision.

That transition plan involves current Knox County High School Principal Alex Van Delft becoming superintendent in July of 2025. Van Delft has worked in administration at Knox County since the 2017-18 school year. Turgeon says having Van Delft around made his decision easier.

Turgeon adds this transition period will allow him to focus on some district needs next year.

Turgeon’s retirement takes effect on June 30th, 2025.
