After another election season has come and gone, we thought it was a good time for our monthly news roundup. In case you’ve missed our previous news round-ups, we thought we’d fill you in. Every few weeks we send out a news story or two to help you be in the know when it comes to education news in Tennessee. Without further ado:

ChalkBeat – Bill Lee is Tennessee’s Next Governor. Here’s How He’ll Begin to Shape Education

Tennessean – Nashville Public Schools Boost the Number of AP Exams Taken Thanks to Free-Test Program

WKRN – Tennessee Students Break State Records for Highest Score, Participation on ACT

Did you miss the TSS news last week? Our President and CEO Adam Lister offered some thoughts on the recent election:

“We congratulate Governor-Elect Bill Lee on tonight’s election victory. Voters across the state reinforced a consistent election-night message: student-centered, success-focused education reform is key to Tennessee’s continued education gains. We look forward to continuing and accelerating the work to increase high school graduation rates, encouraging career and technical opportunities, and helping take Tennessee’s classrooms from good to great.”

What’s not news? How grateful we are for all the ways you help, give, and celebrate Tennessee’s kids. Thank you!
