Strategic Plan

In 2015, we launched a new chapter where we built on the strong foundation in each of our schools and districts to better realize our goals for Tennessee students, with our vision and strategies articulated in a strategic plan called Tennessee Succeeds. If we are successful: Districts and schools in Tennessee will exemplify excellence and equity such that all students are equipped with the knowledge and skills to successfully embark upon their chosen path in life.
