Bartlett City Schools 2014-15 Bell Times
UPDATE: As the Transportation Department was finalizing routes for the 2014-15 school year, they informed Bartlett City Schools that moving Altruria Elementary to an 8:00 a.m. start time would provide more efficient routing and the potential to save the District on transportation costs. This change would also create a better feeder pattern between Elmore Park and Altruria. This was the only change that was cost neutral or had the potential for savings; therefore, we are happy to announce that Altruria Elementary will now be an 8:00 a.m. – 3:00 p.m. school. Click below for the updated list of BCS Bell Times for 2014-15.

Superintendent's Message

Superintendent
I would like to take this opportunity to introduce you to one of the newest school districts in the State of Tennessee, Bartlett City Schools!  Bartlett City Schools is comprised of eleven schools and approximately 8,000 students located in Bartlett, Tennessee.  Our community has shown a tremendous commitment to creating our local school system, and I am encouraged by the enthusiasm our school district has created in our city.  As the Superintendent of Bartlett City Schools, I am determined to provide the best educational opportunities for all of our students. Being a parent of two children in Bartlett Schools, I have a personal stake in ensuring that our students are prepared for college, career, and their future endeavors.  From academics to fine arts and athletics, our goal is to provide a positive learning environment where our students can reach their fullest potential. 

When I consider the components of all successful school systems, I’m reminded that they all share a strong foundation. We must also build our district with a solid core, and I refer to this foundation as “Bartlett City Schools Four Cornerstones for Success.”  Primarily, we must have highly effective teachers in all our classrooms. Research shows that highly effective teachers remain the one school-determined factor that has the greatest impact on student achievement. The second cornerstone is effective leadership. We must have strong principals in our schools to recruit, develop, and retain our highly effective teachers. Without great principals, we cannot develop great teachers. Thirdly, a supportive and efficient administrative staff is critical for success. The central office must support our schools so that our teachers and students can achieve. District staff will accomplish this goal by being good stewards of public dollars and by ensuring that our teachers have what they need to be successful. The fourth cornerstone is strong parent and community support. Committed parents and community partners will ensure that our students excel. 

I know that our parents and the community have many questions regarding the future of our schools, and we hope our website will answer many of these.  Our intent is to provide the most up to date information possible, so please check back often for our latest news and updates. 

We are excited about the opportunities that Bartlett City Schools will provide our students and community.  I am hopeful that you will join us as we start this new and exciting chapter is our city’s history. 

David A. Stephens

Superintendent
