Welcome to Grainger County Schools


All emergency contacts for students and staff have been converted to SchoolMessenger, our new call home program. 

If you currently receive calls and would like to receive texts as well, you must "Opt In" by texting "Y" or "Yes" to 67587.


Teachers, paraprofessionals, and support staff are working diligently to prepare all Grainger County students for their future success - whether that is in the next grade/course, college, career, or the community at large. Students have the opportunity to showcase their knowledge and understanding of various subjects on an array of mandated state tests. As the testing becomes available, you’ll be getting more specific information from your student’s teachers and administrators. I encourage you to work closely with us as we prepare students for academic success.  

As always, I am honored to be working in a community surrounded by individuals - parents, students, teachers, administrators, school board members, etc. - who realize the value of a solid investment in our children. Our decisions today will affect our community tomorrow, and I look forward to working together to make the best decisions possible. Together, we will work to allow educators to TEACH with rigor and relevance so that students will LEARN the skills and knowledge needed to SUCCEED in becoming community, college, and career ready.
