Tennessee PTA Awarded Grant

May 14, 2019

According to The Chattanoogan, the National PTA has awarded five states, including its Tennessee affiliate, with a grant to help inform parents about school report cards and “empower them to advocate to ensure this data is accessible, transparent and actionable.” ESSA “requires school districts and states to annually release a school report card, which includes important information about school environment, demographics and performance on the state, local and school level. This data, however, doesn’t always speak for itself,” said Jim Accomando, President of National PTA. “We are pleased to provide Tennessee PTA with resources to empower parents to read, interpret and take action to turn school report cards into results for their child’s school.”
