Update on Planning for Reopening of Schools

Collierville Schools continues in earnest our preparation for the 2020-21 school year, guided by the advice and regulations of both the Shelby County Health Department and the Tennessee Department of Education. While many questions surrounding the reopening of our schools remain, we are committed to confronting multiple challenges in ways that will allow us to serve and protect our students and our employees. The attached document summarizes some of the conditions, resources, and strategies that have framed our work so far. We share the desires of our stakeholders for timely and definitive plans, and we express our ongoing appreciation for your patience and understanding as we formulate those in a safe, effective, and efficient manner.

Superintendent's Corner

Superintendent’s Corner
It is our mission to prepare our students for a life of scholarship, integrity, and service.
It can be difficult to condense the work of a school district to a single sentence.  However, the mission statement above pretty well sums up what we are endeavoring to provide for the students who attend our schools.   It is a lofty mission, but the future of our children is at stake, which is a responsibility that we take very seriously.
We have extremely talented and dedicated faculty and staff members serving our more than 9,000 students in six elementary schools, two middle schools, and Collierville High School. We have a rigorous curriculum and offer numerous opportunities for student involvement in athletics and extra-curricular activities.  Our amazing students usually meet—and often exceed—our high expectations as evidenced by the district’s excellent performance on academic and other measures at both the state and national levels.
Collierville Schools is blessed to have the support and assistance of parents, community members, a cadre of Partners In Education (PIE), and the Collierville Education Foundation, all of whom play a major role in the programming that we can provide and the success of our students.  If you are not already, I invite you to join the Collierville Schools family.
We are going to have a great 2019-20 school year!  I would love to hear your ideas, concerns, comments, and suggestions.  Feel free to email or call anytime.  I look forward to working with you to ensure that each child under our care receives the best educational experience possible.
