Speaker(s):  Jim Blalock

4. Special Recognition for Brown Elementary's Academic Gain
Rationale: 

We would like to recognize Frank P. Brown Elementary for being ranked #1 out of 530  K-8 and middle schools across the state of Tennessee by the Education Consumers Foundation. 

The ECF is a foundation focused on education policy and practice.  Functions of this organization include the use of TVAAS data to “identify and reward effective school leaders, help consumers determine how effective their local schools are, uncover information on the relationship between poverty and effectiveness, and identify practices common to effective schools (ECF, 2012).”  More information about the Education Consumers Foundation and the rankings of schools across Tennessee can be found at www.education-consumers.org.

Brown’s #1 status reflects their school effectiveness based upon their two- year average student academic gains in reading/language and math.  According to the ECF, Brown was ranked #2 in 2011 and #65 in 2010. 

More information about the Education Consumers Foundation and the rankings of schools across Tennessee can be found at www.education-consumers.org.

Congratulations to the students, faculty, and leaders of Brown Elementary.  Job well done!
