Spring City Elem. School wins statewide award

Posted: Updated:

SPRING CITY, TN (WRCB)- Rhea County's Spring City Elementary School was recognized by the Tennessee Department of Education in Nashville for their school wide initiatives using Professional Learning Communities. 

Principal Shane Johnston and Superintendent Jerry Levengood were recognized during the closing general session of the 2012 Annual Special Education Conference.

Spring City Elementary School implemented Professional Learning Communities to strengthen the staff's input into all areas of decision making within the school so that teacher and staff capacity is enhanced and communication between the administration and staff is more open than ever.

The school began with an initial PLC and has since added several other PLC's that are working to break down components of the new evaluation model, tackle some school issues, and most recently an additional PLC was created to work on a common philosophy for school discipline and implementation of School Wide Positive Behavior Supports.

Principal Johnston said, "We are very excited about being recognized at the state level for the East Grand Division and look forward to continuing to make innovative steps in education to best help the children of our community, county, and state."
