On the Road with Tennessee Succeeds

This video highlights the great work already being done in Tennessee and shows how we will build on these successes to further the work in our state. Learn about the department’s new strategic plan, Tennessee Succeeds, and the five priority areas we will focus on to meet our three ambitious goals:

  • Tennessee will rank in the top half of states on the National Assessment of Educational Progress (NAEP), or the nation’s Report Card, by 2019
  • The average ACT composite score in Tennessee will be a 21 by 2020
  • The majority of high school graduates from the class of 2020 will earn a postsecondary certificate, diploma or degree

To read the full strategic plan addressing how we will achieve these goals, visit the department website.  You can also read the 2015-16 Tennessee Teacher of the Year, Cathy Whitehead’s, insight as to how Tennessee Succeeds will benefit our students and our state.
