From the Office
Hello Parents,
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. 
Thank you!

SES Principal Franklin Appointed to Gov. Haslam Council

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.
