Provide Feedback on Science, Math & ELA Standards

Provide Feedback on Science, Math & ELA Standards

Last week, the State Board of Education launched a review website to collect public feedback on Tennessee’s K-12 science, math & ELA standards. The website provides an opportunity for every Tennessean to participate in the first phase of a highly transparent and comprehensive standards review process. We encourage educators, parents, and other stakeholders to review the science, math & ELA standards and provide feedback.

Superintendent's Message

Superintendent As we move into our second year as a municipal school district, we continue to build on our foundation of great teachers, great leaders, supportive staff, and an engaged community. Our goal is for the entire Bartlett community to be proud of our school district.

As we discussed last year, one of the building blocks of our school system is an enhanced technology experience for our students. In its first year, Bartlett City Schools successfully piloted a 1:1 technology initiative at our Bartlett Academy. Over 100 students were provided a device to use at school and to take home to continue their learning.  After this successful pilot, we are now ready for phase two of our technology plan for our students.  

I am pleased to announce that Bartlett City Schools will be enriching the classroom experience by providing a laptop computer for our 6th – 9th grade students this school year. The BCS 1:1 initiative will emphasize innovation in our classrooms and provide each individual student access to information outside the classroom. The technological world our students live in is changing at a rapid pace, and the learning opportunities that our 1:1 initiative will provide our students is limitless.  Teachers will no longer be limited by classroom resources and the four walls of their classroom but will have access to current resources to further engage our students in the learning process.   

Our plan is to repurpose the desktop computers and computer carts from our middle schools and Academy to use in our elementary schools. This shift will provide a greater technology experience for our elementary students. During the 2016-17 school year, our plan is to expand the 1:1 initiative to our 10th – 12th grade students providing increased opportunities for our high schoolers.

Bartlett City Schools is committed to providing a learning environment that will help our students reach their potential. We are excited about the opportunities that our 1:1 initiative will provide our students by opening up the world to them and preparing them for their future. 

Dr. David A. Stephens

How will TNReady work?

How will TNReady work?

TNReady questions will be more engaging for students because they are interactive and taken online. This also makes the results easier for teachers to view and share.

In reading and writing – students will read from texts and provide written responses to support their answers. In math – students will solve multi-step problems, many without using a calculator, to show what they know. Much like teachers already do in their classrooms, TNReady will give students a variety of new ways to show what they really know and can do.
