NASHVILLE, Tenn. (WTVF) — Gov. Bill Lee urged school districts to ensure $4.5 billion in federal COVID-19 relief stimulus funding goes directly toward student achievement.
"In-person learning is safe & it’s the only way our students will get back on track after significant learning loss. I support the State Board of Education’s work to ensure that in-person learning is again the standard in TN & virtual learning is reserved for emergency use only," Gov. Lee tweeted Monday.
