The Clarksville Montgomery County School System in partnership with the Montgomery County Education Foundation, Tennessee Score, Austin Peay State University, and the Clarksville-Montgomery County Home Builders Association held “Raising the Bar for Students in Tennessee” an event where community leaders and elected officials gathered to hear information about the state’s new standards and assessments and their impact on students.
Tennessee is raising the bar for student achievement with higher academic standards in the classroom. The higher standards will help us make sure students are ready for college or for a career when they graduate from high school. That means the students not only master the basics like reading and math, but also developing skills that colleges and employers value – like communications, problem solving and teamwork.
Tennessee Governor Phil Bredesen met with Clarksville-Montgomery County School Board Chairman Jim Mann and Board Member Horace Murphy, Jr. today during a press conference about raising the bar in the state’s educational system.
