Superintendent's Message

Superintendent, Dr. David A. Stephens
Welcome to Bartlett City Schools, a Tennessee Department of Education Exemplary District! As we enter a new school year, I am excited about the opportunities that lie ahead. We continue to build a strong foundation based on great teachers and leaders, a supportive Board and District staff, and an engaged community. With our strong foundation that has been built over the past four years, we continue to build a District that exemplifies excellence in all we do. Our overarching theme, an attitude of excellence, is exhibited daily in the endeavors of our teachers, staff, administration, and students. I know that Bartlett City Schools will continue to build on this excellence!

As we look ahead to the 2018-2019 school year, we remain committed to preparing our students for the potential challenges they may face in their educational journey. To assist them in meeting these challenges, we depend on our exceptional teaching staff to continue to raise the bar in their classrooms and build on our District's strong foundation. I am proud of our many accomplishments, in our classrooms and across our district, and I look forward to creating more opportunities for student success with your help.

Our regional, state and national successes have been demonstrated in a short amount of time. I am also honored that Bartlett City Schools was ranked #2 in the Top 10 Large Business Workplaces in 2017, proving that great school systems are built with great people. We should all be proud of the many accomplishments our district has achieved. With our outstanding staff, each bringing their attitude of excellence every day, we can continue to provide a great educational experience that leads to tremendous opportunities for all our students. I am honored to be a member of Bartlett City Schools and the greater Bartlett community and I look forward to the many successes this school year will bring.

Dr. David A. Stephens
