SCORE and the Expect More, Achieve More Coalition are both committed to ensuring excellence in education for all our students. By raising awareness about the difficulties Tennessee military families face and by providing supports to those families and their students, we move forward in that goal of academic excellence and we also better serve those who serve our country.

While my time at Vanderbilt has been invaluable in providing the theoretical foundations for the next steps in my career, SCORE has helped define and refine many of the specific skills that will be used in my future. Since I joined the team as a graduate fellow last fall, SCORE has given me an opportunity to marry my newly-polished skills with practical applications. SCORE is a dynamic organization that values communication, constant improvement, and a deep focus on students. SCORE emphasizes research, innovation, accuracy, and collaboration. Underscoring this culture is a sense of urgency and belief in all students in Tennessee.

Beginning April 17, approximately 600,000 students in Tennessee will sharpen their No. 2 pencils and take TNReady, Tennessee’s new state assessment. There’s a lot of information out there about what TNReady is, why Tennessee kids are taking it, and how you can help them prepare. If you’re a parent and you’re already juggling a half million things – soccer practice, homework, and work – you might feel overwhelmed. Don’t worry – this SCORE Sheet post is for you.

More people need to hear about the needs of your students, and how they deserve more. As teachers, we transform our students and by doing this we create the future. Why not be a part of shaping the educational landscape in Tennessee? You will learn how as a teacher you can make their needs heard beyond your classroom walls and into the ears of those making decisions that directly affect them.

Finding high quality, engaging, and age-appropriate literature for children, adolescents, and young adults can be daunting, but for families impacted by military service, this challenge is compounded by the unique circumstances surrounding deployment, separation, and reintegration.
