It's Been a Great Year!

2014 has been an incredible year. 

As the year comes to a close, it's nice to reflect on all that has been accomplished by committed, engaged citizens who work together to put schools first. 

Working together, we changed the face of the Sumner County Commission

Working together, we pushed the School Board to pass a budget that sets our schools on a path toward excellence.

Working together, we convinced the new County Commission to fund meaningful investments in our schools.

These investments mean:

New building-level staff to handle the challenges of a growing system

A plan to maximize existing space and build where necessary - so portables as permanent classrooms will become a thing of the past

Providing the resources our students and teachers need for success

The ability to recruit and retain high quality teachers and support staff

Your support made this possible. By staying engaged, you have made a difference.

We've also:

Started an ongoing discussion with our Director of Schools where he answers the questions you ask.

Revamped and relaunched our website.

And finally, we are already planning for an exciting 2015.

Thank you for coming together as a community. It has been a long road and we are not done yet. We still have much work to do in the coming years and we are looking forward to continued partnership!
