TSS Action Center

Tennesseans for Student Success Action Center

Team TSS is excited to announce our action center as a new way for you to get involved with our advocacy efforts. Through our action center, you are able to look up your legislator, sign petitions, and email your local legislator during the 2020 legislative session about issues you’re passionate about. 

One of the newest features of our action center is our text messaging alerts system. By signing up for TSS Action Network Alerts, you can stay up-to-date on issues affecting Tennessee’s students. We will send you only the most urgent issues seeking your input on how these policies impact students and how to raise your voice for student improvement. 

It’s critical we ensure Tennessee’s students have the best opportunity for college and career. Help us prevent politics from entering the classroom today.
