The Tennessee Department of Education announced on December 1, 2008, that Burchfield Elementary in Oneida, Tennessee, is a national recipient for the Title I Distinguished School, a joint project of the National Association of State Title I Directors (NASTID) and the U.S. Department of Education. The program honors schools that have shown exceptional results either for sustained student achievement for two or more consecutive years or for Closing the Achievement Gap.
“Scott County and Burchfield Elementary have shown continued academic growth over the past few years and we congratulate them on their achievements,” explains CompassLearning CEO Eric Loeffel. “We take great pride in our role in facilitating student success and look forward to a long and fruitful partnership.”
