It's going to be a fun night in Nashville tonight! The State Collaborative on Reforming Education (SCORE) will award the second annual SCORE Prize at an event at the historic Ryman Auditorium in Nashville. The SCORE Prize will be awarded to the elementary, middle, and high school, along with one school district in Tennessee that have most dramatically improved student achievement. In awarding the SCORE Prize, SCORE aims to recognize those schools and districts, highlight and share their best practices, and show other schools and districts throughout Tennessee that improvement is possible.
The Prize event will be hosted by SCORE Chairman and former U.S. Senate Majority Leader Bill Frist and will include remarks from Tennessee Governor Bill Haslam, Commissioner of Education Kevin Huffman, and SCORE President and CEO Jamie Woodson. U.S. Secretary of Education Arne Duncan will make remarks by video. The event will also feature a performance by award-winning singer/songwriter Phil Vassar. The SCORE Prize event is being held in conjunction with the Tennessee Department of Education’s annual LEAD Conference.
Congrats to all the winners!
