Reading 360 Model District

BTCS is one of five districts in the state to be recognized as a Reading 360 Model District for outstanding work in early literacy. As a result, our district has been selected as a Tennessee Model Foundational Skills Implementation District grant awardee for implementing the Tennessee Foundational Skills Curriculum Supplement during the 2020-21 school year.    

Districts applied to be Reading 360 Model Implementation Districts for the TN Foundational Skills Curriculum Supplement in the spring of 2021, and the five districts selected demonstrated a strong and clear focus on foundational literacy skills. BTCS received a grant award of $300,000 to support our ongoing implementation of foundational literacy skills, as well as to help the Department of Education collect model instructional videos for the implementation tools and resources that any district may use to support their own implementation of foundational literacy skills. 

The other districts to receive the grant are Jackson County Schools, Lebanon Special School District, Milan Special School District, and Williamson County Schools. Read more here.
