Nashville, TENNESSEE – According to the Tennessee Department of Education, the department members, elected officials, and education partners will have the chance to join the various engagements to learn more about how schools are accelerating student achievement.
This year, the General Assembly passed the Tennessee Investment in Student Achievement Act, which updates the way the state funds public education for the first time in over 30 years and prioritizes the needs of each individual student, officials said.
To highlight these important policies and programs to support students, Commissioner Penny Schwinn, department staff, state and local elected officials, and community partners are visiting 50 of Tennessee’s school districts this summer to connect directly with students, educators, and stakeholders.
