The Sweetwater City School System is a member of the
Expect More, Achieve More Coalition,
a statewide alliance of business, community, and education organizations
in Tennessee that supports high academic standards in public education.
The contact person for our district is Dr. Larry Stein,
The Coalition’s goal is to build statewide and local engagement, support,
and awareness of Tennessee’s efforts to raise the academic bar in the
classroom. We believe that a well-educated community will encourage
business growth and development by providing an employable workforce.
Stronger business development will ensure that our communities remain
alive and healthy economically, physically and socially.
The Expect More, Achieve More Coalition will focus on providing parents,
educators, students and community members with the tools they need to
ensure all students graduate ready for work or post-high school education.
Some resources for information are:
- A Common Cause, a
five-minute video narrated by education stakeholders in Tennessee, which
explains what the Common Core State Standards are and how they fit in with
Tennessee’s other education reform efforts.
- ExpectMoreTN.org, an online
resource that includes specific information for parents, teachers, and
A brochure, which is being distributed across the state, to provide
parents and community members with clear information on the new standards.
