Three Farragut schools named ‘Reward Schools’ by TN Dept. of Education

Three Farragut schools were singled out as “Reward Schools” by the Tennessee Department of Education last week, as recognized by state Sen. Richard Briggs (R-District 7, which includes Farragut): Farragut High School, Farragut Intermediate School and Farragut Middle School.

“Reward schools are those that are improving in terms of achievement and growth for both all students and student groups. These schools are identified annually for making outstanding progress,” a press release from Briggs’ office stated.

“This is a tremendous honor for these schools,” Briggs said. “I congratulate these hard working students, caring parents, inspiring teachers and great administrators for a job well done.”

Specifically, “The schools were named Reward Schools as a result of the TNReady assessment result released by the DOE on Thursday (Aug. 15),” the press release further stated. “… Reward Schools also serve as strategic partners with the Department of Education to raise student achievement levels throughout the state by analyzing and sharing their best teaching practices.”
