Knox County, TN Public Schools Tap Tyler Tech on Modernization


Knox County Public Schools have signed a seven-year contract with Texas-based Tyler Technologies to update the school system’s legacy human resources and payroll programs. The SaaS contract will put the county on Tyler’s Munis enterprise resource planning solution.

The agreement includes hosting services, related professional services, maintenance and support.

Knox County Government, which provides financial management services to Knox County Public Schools, also uses Munis, which will further streamline financial integration between the two entities.

Knox County Public Schools has about 9,000 employees serving approximately 60,000 students in 89 schools. School officials say the upgrade will improve new employee onboarding and save administrative time on human resources and payroll related issues.

Tyler inked a similar deal with Georgia’s Marietta City Schools earlier this month. That deal expanded Tyler’s already sizable market share within Georgia agencies. The company maintains Munis contracts with a handful of other districts and departments throughout the state

In addition to modernizing Marietta City Schools administrative systems, Marietta will use Munis to distribute reporting and other information to employees, parents, the school board and regulatory agencies.

Contract values were not disclosed.
