The Williamson County School System shows that hard work pays off in education. Superintendent Dr. Mike Looney describes the district’s outlook as an “urgency emergency” that is guided by student achievement data. The results speak for themselves. The county has made strides in narrowing the achievement gap and improving college-going rates. By raising expectations and increasing efficiencies, Williamson County Schools has improved achievement for all of its students. On Monday, October 8, SCORE will award the second annual SCORE Prize at the historic Ryman Auditorium in Nashville. Please click here to reserve your free tickets to the event.
