McMinn County named school board of the year

Posted: Updated:
NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) - Tennessee's School Boards Association has named the McMinn County Board of Education as its school board of the year.

The McMinn County school board was named the 2014 winner of the award at the association's annual convention Monday.

TSBA says McMinn County is an education leader in Tennessee and is often cited as a model for other districts.

According to the TSBA, McMinn County has a graduation rate of 92 percent and created instructional coaches in all schools to help improve teaching practices.

The county also developed and implemented a prospective principal academy and expanded dual credit options with two local community colleges.

    Good Tuesday.  We are all under a WINTER WEATHER ADVISORY and some of us under a WIND CHILL ADVISORY through the day. It will be cold all day with high temperatures only reaching the upper 20s and low 30s.  These high temps will be reached early on at about noon, and then temps will be dropping through the afternoon as a cold front works through.
