Like public school districts in the area, Fort Knox Community Schools plan to start later this school year.

The new start date announced by the DepartĀ­ment of Defense Education Activity is Aug. 24. While the decision shifts the opening date of schools, it will not shorten the school year.

FKCS faculty and staff will return Aug. 17 with students returning a week later, according to information released online Friday.
