Print | Front Page | Email this story

NASHVILLE (AP) — Tennessee's Education Department has awarded nearly $5 million in federal funds to five school districts.

The money will be used to help them plan how to best support their Priority Schools, the lowest-performing 5 percent of schools in the state, in terms of academic achievement.

A new list of Priority Schools was identified last summer.

The funds can assist districts in engaging the community, recruiting teachers and leaders, and exploring additional resources that may be needed for the Priority Schools.

The districts and the amounts they will receive are:

  • Metro Nashville Public Schools, $1.3 million
  • Knox County Schools, $1 million
  • Shelby County Schools, $900,000
  • Jackson-Madison County Schools, $400,000
  • Achievement School District, $1.3 million
