Another Area School Recognized by State Education Commissioner

Dr Candice McQueen

We reported yesterday that Education Commissioner Candice McQueen announced Tennessee’s 2017 Reward schools on Friday, which include the top 5 percent of schools for academic achievement and the top 5 percent for student growth. These 169 schools span 60 districts across Tennessee.
We reported that Hillsboro Elementary in Coffee County was listed as Reward Progress and we would also like to report that Pelham Elementary in Grundy County received the same recognition.
Of the 2017 Reward schools, 59 are being recognized for performance, 85 are recognized for progress, and 25 schools are Reward schools both for performance and progress.
