The Hawkins County School District was informed on Friday, September 18  that one of its schools has been nominated for the National Title I Distinguished School Award.  Church Hill Elementary School is one of eight schools in Tennessee that has been nominated for this prestigious award.

The National Title I Distinguished Schools Program is a project of the National Title I Association, established to publicly recognize qualifying Title I schools for the outstanding academic achievements of their students. It highlights the efforts of schools across the country making significant improvements for their students. The program has been in place since 1996, showcasing the success of hundreds of schools in one of two categories:

  • Schools in Category I are recognized for showing a high level of sustained student achievement.
  • Schools in Category II are recognized for making significant progress in closing the achievement gap between student groups.

Church Hill Elementary has been nominated for Category II for making significant progress in closing the achievement gap between student groups at the school.

Principal, Teresa Drinnon, met with the Church Hill Elementary Staff on Monday, September 21 to announce the school’s nomination.
