24 Sumner County Schools Earn Reward School Status and Letter A Distinction


Sumner County Schools is pleased to announce the schools that earned Reward School status and Letter A distinction for the 2022-23 school year. Ten schools earned Reward School status, and 14 schools earned the highest possible grade by the Tennessee Department of Education. (Among the 24 schools honored, some have achieved both designations.) Students in grades 3-11 are tested each year in core subject areas that include math, social studies, science, and English / Language Arts.

Reward Schools recognize schools in a comprehensive measure that includes achievement scores, growth scores, chronic absenteeism, and English Learner proficiency. At the high school level, the measure also includes graduation rates, and ready graduate preparation. Reward Schools are generally those that see high performance in achievement or growth for all students and designated student groups.

For letter distinction, grades are calculated in a comprehensive measure that includes student achievement scores, student academic growth, and growth of the highest need students. At the high school level, college and career readiness measure is also included.

“I am proud of the work we are doing in Sumner County to prepare our children for the next level. With 24 schools earning Reward School status and Letter A distinction for the 2022-2023 school year, this success is a testament to the dedication of our students, teachers, staff and parents who continually strive for excellence,” Sumner County Schools Director, Dr. Scott Langford said. “At Sumner County Schools, being ‘Sumner Ready’ is not just a phrase; it is a promise we mean to keep. We are actively shaping an educational environment where our children are not just prepared for success but are equipped with the skills and resilience to thrive in their future.”
