FCES Principal and Director of Schools Picture at Meeting

Fifth Consolidated Elementary School was recognized at the Tennessee State Board of Education meeting. 

TENNESSEE – on Friday, May 20, 2022, Fifth Consolidated Elementary School Principal, Lou Ann Peery, and Director of Schools, Cheryl Mathis, attended the Tennessee State Board of Education meeting where FCES was recognized for being named a 2021 National ESEA School. 

State board meetings are quarterly meetings where the Board votes on proposed actions, including rule and policy adoption, licensure disciplinary action, and non-binding resolutions.

The National ESEA Distinguished Schools Program’s goal is to highlight the selected schools that have successfully used their ESEA federal funds to improve the quality of public elementary and secondary education for all students–including economically disadvantaged students. FCES’s staff and students are a shining example of the program's success.

“Fifth Consolidated is extremely honored to represent the Dyer County School System as a National ESEA School of Distinction. Our faculty, staff, and students all work collectively towards a common goal, and their hard work has shown through this recognition. We are committed to providing our students with an educational experience that provides them with opportunities for growth both inside and outside the classroom. This recognition is reflective of the overall work happening in our classrooms, the diligence of both our teachers and students, and the support of our community. The combination of all of these factors is what allows us to continue to see an upward trajectory in student learning and success at Fifth Consolidated.” -Lou Ann Peery, Principal

We are honored to have been recognized at the Tennessee State Board of Education Meeting today.
