FSSD Ranked #1 in State for Teacher Support

ranking-badgeThe Franklin Special School District is proud to be ranked #1 in the state for Teacher Support, out of 107 total districts reviewed, by Teacher.org. “The FSSD is blessed to have a teaching force that is dedicated and passionate about meeting the academic, social, physical and emotional needs of our students,” said Director of Schools Dr. David Snowden. “It is the district’s responsibility to provide the support needed to assist them in all areas of their responsibilities. In addition, we know without the tremendous support of our Board of Education, we would not be able to meet the criteria utilized in this selection process.”

Tennessee school districts were assessed on several factors which represent how well a school district supports their teachers. Some criteria included: class size, administrator and support staff availability, and student proficiency levels. Snowden added, “Our goal is to consistently build upon the support provided to our teachers to enhance their opportunities for success in meeting individual student needs.”
