FIRST AND FOREMOST, LET US SAY CONGRATULATIONS TO MARY V. WHEELER ELEMENTARY!
The Tennessee Department of Education has released its annual list of Reward Schools, which recognizes the top five percent of schools in the state for annual growth (progress measured by school-wide value-added data) and the top five percent for academic achievement (performance measured by overall student achievement levels) under the State of Tennessee’s new accountability system. Each year, the Tennessee Department of Education recognizes Tennessee schools that have shown the most progress or performance year-over-year alongside the schools with the highest achievement or value-added data.
This year’s Reward Schools list recognizes Mary V. Wheeler Elementary School as one of Tennessee's Reward Schools for 2013-2014! Congratulations to WES!
Community Eligibility Provision
The Community Eligibility Provision (CEP) provides an alternative approach for offering school meals to local educational agencies (LEAs) and schools in low income areas, instead of collecting individual applications for free and reduced price meals.
The CEP allows schools that predominantly serve low-income children to offer free, nutritious school meals to all students through the National School Lunch and School Breakfast Programs. The CEP uses information from other programs, including the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP) and the Temporary Assistance Program for Needy Families (TANF) instead of traditional paper applications.
