Plans to begin the $10.6 million renovation of Piedmont School next year are on track following state approval of School Board’s plan to use federal ESSER (Elementary and Secondary School Relief) funds for the project.

Approval of the third and final round of ESSER funds also paves the way for an academic tutoring program called Tennessee ALL Corps aimed at addressing learning loss during the coronavirus pandemic, Director of Schools Dr. Shane Johnston told School Board during its meeting last Thursday. The program will bring on board at least 14 certified full-time tutors for three years.
