Juvenile Delinquents
Knox County Career Canter (KCCC) has a special place in my heart and in my life. It is where I went to high school my junior and senior year. While I attended, it was under a different administration and I experienced the discipline first hand.

In 2014 Mrs. Kathy Greenich became the superannuant and brought a new way of thinking to the discsapline of the students.

After students have missed over 10 days of school they can no longer graduate normally in order for them to be able to still graduate they can be sent to the alternative center in order to finish their schooling. Lesser punishments include the freedom center which is a treatment facility for Tabaco and Alcohol in Knox County, also in school suspension and out of school suspensions. The students can be required to go to counsaling after their punishment is over in order to promote a change in their lives.

If it their disability did not cause the incident then they can be disciplined accordably. Everyone
