Woodland named Reward School


Woodland Elementary has been named a Reward School, the highest distinction from the Tennessee Department of Education, for the second consecutive year.

“We are extremely proud of our Woodland students, teachers, support staff, and families for our collective work and consistent quest for excellence,” Woodland Principal Dr. Karen Reach said. “Our 2017/18 and 2018/19 Reward School distinction affirms our continuous commitment to educational success for all students as we continue our amazing work at Woodland.”

Other Johnson City Schools named Reward Schools include Cherokee Elementary, Lake Ridge Elementary, South Side Elementary and Towne Acres Elementary. For the 2018-2019 school year, there were 427 Reward Schools across the state. Reward schools are those that are improving overall student academic achievement and student growth for both all students and for student groups, and they are identified annually.

As a district, Johnson City Schools achieved Advancing Designation and Johnson City was among the top 10 performing districts in all end of course exams for Math and English. Final district determinations are calculated by using a weighted average of the district’s scores on the all students and subgroup status.
