Rutledge Middle School Named Reward School
A handful of East Tennessee schools are making the grade with the Tennessee Department of Education and Rutledge Middle School is among those schools.
Leaders released a list of Reward Schools Monday. It represents the top five percent of Tennessee's schools with the highest achievement and top five percent in overall growth. The measure is part of the new classification system implemented with Tennessee's federal "No Child Left Behind" waiver. RMS made the list of the top 5% of schools with the highest overall growth.
Governor Bill Haslam joined Education Commissioner Kevin Huffman and others at an elementary school in Brentwood to reveal the list. For a complete list of reward schools click here.
"Thank you. Thank you, thank you for working hard, thanks for listening to the teachers, and thank you for showing that Tennessee students can be as great as students anywhere else," Haslam said.
Congratulations to the students, teacher and staff at Rutledge Middle School for a job well done!
