Administrators and assistant principals from districts within the the Tennessee Valley Learning Network took part a unique leadership training from the National Institute for School Leadership (NISL). Districts included Bradley County Schools, Polk County, Monroe County and Sweetwater City schools. The Tennessee Valley Learning Network / NISL training initiative was funded by a TN LEAD grant from the Tennessee Department of Education. These grants were awarded to organizations in partnership with school systems to develop or replicate programs aimed at increasing leader effectiveness and improving student outcomes.
“It is a wonderful training,” Supervisor for elementary education Sheena Newman. “We are just excited to have training (of this) quality.”
