I want to provide you with some information regarding our plan for the state mandated assessments for the 2015-2016 school year. Monday, the state department of education discovered that the on-line assessment with Measurement Inc. had major server issues that will prohibit us from properly assessing our students this school year in an on-line format in a timely manner. Our administrators suspected there may be issues with the practice that we experienced earlier this school year. Therefore, we had intentionally delayed the start of our testing cycle for a few days to see how the servers responded to the entire state testing at the same time. Therefore, our students have not yet started testing. In my opinion, our administrators are to be commended for this forward thinking. The commissioner of education has declared that the state, as a whole, will test as we have done so in the past with a paper and pencil format.
Loudon County Schools has some of the best teachers, students, parents, and administrators in the state of Tennessee. We appreciate your patience and the priority that you place on your child’s education. I feel very confident the students that graduate from our district will be competitive on a state and national level. The day-to-day operation of the school will not change. Teachers will teach, students will learn, and we will make decisions that are in the best interests of our children. If you have any questions or concerns please feel free to reach out to me at 865-458-5411 ext. 1001.

Thank you Bill Smith and Food City for delivering Steekee Elementary's School Bucks! Thank you to all that have linked your Food City Value Card to our school and earned those School Bucks!
Our very own Elf on the Shelf has been spotted around Steekee! She is keeping tabs on the students and teachers to make sure that they are being extra good! Keep a look out for where she will be next!
Congratulations to our spelling bee participants! You did a fantastic job. A big thank you goes out to Mr. Scott MacKintosh for announcing the words.
SES wants to thank the Kiwanis Club for their generous donation of 100 children's books to the library.
We are excited about our new signs in front of our school. The Sherriff’s Department, Highway Department, and Steekee Elementary have partnered together to keep our students safe once again! We have six new signs, four at the steps (pictured below), and two along the parking area in front of our school.
Please use the steps and crosswalk when you are parked in front of the school, along Steekee School Road. This will be much safer than going through the grass and across our driveway especially during high traffic times.

Congratulations to the boys and girls that were chosen for Steekee's Student of the Month!
NASHVILLE – Tennessee Gov. Bill Haslam today announced the appointments of four people to the Standards Recommendation Committee that will make final recommendations to the State Board of Education on new standards to fit the needs of Tennessee’s K-12 students.
The Standards Recommendation Committee will be composed of 10 members. Under legislation passed by the Tennessee General Assembly this year, the governor appoints four members of the committee, with the speaker of the Senate and speaker of the House appointing three each.
The four members appointed by the governor are:
Dr. Sharen Cypress, dean of the College of Education and Behavioral Sciences at Freed-Hardeman University.
Tracy Franklin, principal at Steekee Elementary School in Loudon County.
Amy Gullion, K-5 instructional coach at Smyrna Elementary School in Rutherford County.
Doug Hungate, academic director at Cheatham County Central High School.
“We are committed to obtaining the highest possible standards in Tennessee’s schools, and I am grateful to these dedicated educators for agreeing to serve in this effort,” Haslam said. “All Tennesseans want the best for our students, and this process will build on the historic gains we have made in education.”
The formation of the Standards Recommendation Committee follows a process started by Haslam in October 2014 to take a fresh look at state standards in education, following discussions with educators across the state and an education summit Haslam co-hosted last September with Lt. Gov. Ron Ramsey and House Speaker Beth Harwell.
