New Leadership Search Begins for LCHS
We want to congratulate Mr. Jacob Sorrells on his new job in Marshall County as their Assistant Director of Schools. We always celebrate the graduates of LCHS as they move up in the ranks of their chosen profession. We wish Mr. Sorrells the very best in this new endeavor. Under Mr. Sorrells leadership, Lincoln County has embraced a differentiated learning model that we can all examine with pride. Our test scores have made speedy, steady growth. The LCHS staff under Jacob’s leadership is so very proud of their students graduation rates, End of Course test scores, and especially the ACT scores which will be released this summer. We have had three years of change and we now look forward to finding and securing a leader who will continue to help our students excel in academics, athletics, and in our Career and Technical program. We are so fortunate to have had a series of wonderful leaders at LCHS but stay tuned…..I think great things are still to come!

Bus Garage Office Moving
As of Monday, June 17th, the bus garage office is moving to the Maintenance office at 203 Davidson Street, behind the bus garage building. Keith Gill & Roxanne Thomas will be located there while the renovations to the bus garage building are being completed. The phones will be forwarded so the bus garage numbers will still work.
Local Schools, Local Decisions
Under the leadership of the TSBA President, Renea Jones-Rogers, the Tennessee School Boards Association launched a statewide campaign to increase awareness of the importance of local control of public schools.
The campaign, Local Schools, Local Decisions, will place emphasis on the importance of keeping public education from becoming a tool of any single group or person. The campaign will also focus on maintaining the collective belief that public education exists to serve all people equally. Historically, communities have supported local, lay school boards to make certain that local schools serve the community effectively and equally.
