Tennessee Celebrates 2017 Reward Schools
On October 20th, Education Commissioner, Candice McQueen, announced Tennessee’s 2017 Reward schools. There was a total of 169 schools out of 1833 that achieved this honor. We are extremely proud to be one of the 10 schools in Sumner County that were named a Reward school.
In accordance with Tennessee’s accountability system, the TN Dept. of Education names Reward, Priority and Focus schools.
H B Williams was among 7 Sumner County schools that received the Reward Performance Award. According to their website (http://www.tn.gov/education/article/2017-school-accountability), it states:
Reward Schools: Reward schools include the top 10 percent of schools based on at least one of two pathways:
Reward Performance: Five percent of schools with the highest success rates in the state.
Reward Progress: Five percent of schools with the highest progress in the state (using one-year TVAAS index values).
We are extremely proud of our students, teachers and faculty here at H B Williams. Without the hard work, dedication and love for teaching that our staff has, this honor would not be possible.
