Dickson County Schools TNReady scores: A top district once again
Wednesday morning over The Discovery School intercom system, the Dickson County School District was among the highest-performing during the last school year.
Dr. Danny Weeks first announced the entire districts’s honor with a microphone in hand and a cake celebrating the school’s achievements.
“We are here to let everyone know that Dickson County, is a Level 5 school district,” said Weeks, followed by applause from the district’s administrative staff.
Weeks later explained that the Level 5 for Dickson County means there is statistically significant data that proves they are changing students’ lives, one by one, as they are using them and challenging them to perform more than a year’s growth.
The administrators traveled in three vans among the eight schools that were announced as Reward Schools and Level 5 schools Wednesday by the Tennessee Department of Education.
Overall, Dickson County schools earned an “Advanced” designation.
