TDOE Launches Survey to Solicit Public Feedback on Federal CARES Act


NASHVILLE, TN— The Tennessee Department of Education has released a public survey seeking feedback from all stakeholders on the most effective ways to help school districts address immediate needs to respond to the coronavirus pandemic.

H.R. 748, the “Coronavirus Aid, Relief, And Economic Security Act” (CARES Act) is federal legislation to provide $2 trillion in emergency relief in response to COVID-19 and includes $30.75 billion nationally for Education Stabilization Funding.

Tennessee school districts are eligible to receive one-time relief funding, once it becomes available, based on their Title I formula percentages. Each state will be required to submit a plan that the US Department of Education must approve in order to receive funding, and the federal application is expected to open mid-April. Due to this timeline, the deadline to complete the survey is Monday, April 13.

“For the past few weeks, we have been in frequent contact with superintendents and school leaders across the state, and there is no doubt that these one-time federal relief funds for education will be welcomed and critical,” said Education Commissioner Dr. Penny Schwinn.

“The department is making every effort to position our state to get funding to districts as soon as possible. Our districts and educators are working hard to support students in this new distance format, and that is why I waived the 180 instructional days requirement this year following the passage of the General Assembly’s legislation last month. The department will remain laser focused on helping ensure districts have the resources they need to continue to serve the children of Tennessee.”

The survey questions are intended to help the Department understand local needs as well as potential investments and supports that could be offered to local school districts. That includes gaining insight and input from all stakeholders in order to draft a strong plan and application for the federal government.

The department’s efforts on the federal CARES Act is the next step in a series of state efforts to help schools and districts respond to the coronavirus pandemic and continue instruction and critical services that all students deserve.

Last month, the Tennessee General Assembly passed Public Chapter 652 to ensure no student, teacher, or school is adversely impacted by COVID-19 related school closures.

The United States Congress passed the Coronavirus Aid, Relief, And Economic Security (CARES) Act, which includes one-time relief funding for local school districts, intended to address challenges of providing education during the COVID-19 pandemic.

We are noticing some of the Crockett Couny school teachers and administration are sending communication to their students through school email, remind apps or texts, class dojo, bloomz, etc. Whatever your students school or teacher uses.

We haven't received anything official from the schools yet but as parents of students, we are having our students check their emails just to make sure their teachers aren't trying to reach out.

We've even noticed some teachers post things that aren't mandentory but will help students stay refreshed on what they are learning.

The schools are working to get a plan together to issue out by Wednesday April 1. We will update as soon as that information is made available to us.

We hope everyone is enjoying their extended break and staying safe.

Welcome Crockett County residents!! If we can help in anyway give us a call!
Just wanted to let people know that Roberts Package store is closed and Hometown Spirits has what your looking for. Plus we are closer than Jackson and Dyersburg. 91b Milan Hwy. Milan TN 38358. City limits of Medina in the Shoppes of Medina.
Back when I could do something with dogs instead of just writing about them.The dog is Buddy who taught me that there are two days in every week that we should not worry about--Yesterday a d Tomorrow.
Love your paper, Jay Lowery, Ron Arnold, and anyone who likes dogs.
Good county paper.Covers events that are important to the communities in the county.
I appreciate getting something published now and then. The only place I see customers is at the doctor's office or at church or at the senior center and it makes me feel good when they compliment me on my articles. I used to write the sports section when the paper was called The Sentinel. My column was called Speaking of Sports by Charles Leggett. The paper seems to keep improving. Good work.
We are so excited to have a Christmas display in our window display on court square!
October 31, 2018 OP - ED VOTE BLUE IN NOVEMBER: DEFEAT THE TRUMPITE REPUBLICANS Americans should vote in the midterms to defeat Republicans in Congress because they are in effect serving as an arm of the White House and not serving the people of this country. These are some of the main things wrong about Trump and his cohorts in Congress: 1. Trump’s actions and policies are treasonous. He has acted in the interest of Russia, a hostile foreign power, as a puppet of Putin. He has failed to effectively enforce sanctions, continued to ignore Russian hacking into our midterm elections and worked against our NATO allies. He has consorted with Putin and other Russian officials in secrecy. What do the Russians have over Trump? The answer is under our nose. A forensic audit of his business and personal tax returns would prove that Russian-based investment and lending sources revived his once bankrupt business empire. There may well be crimes involved as well, such as money laundering. This isn’t conjecture, because enough information is already public. The Republican controlled Congress has stonewalled and avoids using its’ powers to investigate his finances The Russians could pull the rug on Trump’s empire, and that is why he is under their thumb. 2. The Republican regime has been making healthcare less available or affordable for people, especially as regards pre-existing conditions, which is putting sick people at risk and costing lives. We cannot let this continue. 3. Trump and the Republican majority in Congress disrespect women and women’s rights, treating women as an underclass, half of the population as they are, and holding back on issues such as equal pay, healthcare and childcare, and equal justice. Judge Kavanaugh’s Supreme Court nomination reveals how the Republican Party has crossed a “red line”, and ought to be driven to obscurity, like the Communist party, because they are anathema to the American way. The Republican Party is not the party of Lincoln or even Eisenhower; it has morphed into a cancer on The Body Politic. The comment a few talking heads have made, that the “Me Too” movement may scare boys or young men from thinking of someday seeking office or coaching or whatever, is “Poppycock”, as Ike would say. The real point is that no mother or father wants their daughters raped or assaulted; it’s not acceptable, and the Republican tolerance of this will be their downfall. 4. Congressional Republicans, more than anyone else, are the “Enablers of illegal immigration” That is, they have for many years accepted illegal immigration as one of several ways to keep wages down on the backs of the American working class. Illegal immigration can only be curbed by enforcing laws violated by employers who hire and harbor illegals. Their policy is consistent with efforts to also suppress labor unions and fight increases in the minimum wage. Trump now rails against illegals only as a tactic to divide the electorate on racial grounds. 5. Republicans boast of their tax legislation, which does not noticeably lower income taxes for most working and middle class Americans, while Trump and his wealthy cronies will pay about one trillion dollars less in taxes at the expense of things like social security, education, healthcare, increased national debt. inflation and future tax increases including tariffs as a new form of taxation. Most of the tax benefits to wealthy people have gone to corporate buyouts, not capital improvements. 6. Now as to the economy, there is a lot of unjustified hype. Firstly, the unemployment rate does not take into account the millions of people who hold menial jobs rather than none, or who have given up looking for work, or perhaps even a little slanting by an administration which lies by the truckload. In any case worker wages are stagnant, leaving average people with a lower standard of living after taking into account inflation and rising healthcare, housing and other costs. 7. Trump calls the media “the enemy of the people” and “fake news”, threatening news media and even inciting violence against reporters, this coming from a master of deceit himself. His conduct is reminiscent of dictators LIKE STALIN, dangerous to democracy. Freedom of speech and the press is guaranteed by the First Amendment. The cowardice of the Republican-controlled Congress, afraid to rein in a would-be despot like Trump, is alarming. 8. To reference some, but not all of the other issues briefly: Trump has been increasingly running the country as a dictator, setting a bad precedent for American democracy. The Republican controlled congress has not used its’ “checks and balances” powers. Trump demands loyalty to himself rather than the Constitution, like a mobster or dictator. He is divisive and incites his base to violence; he is immoral in character; he violates the Constitution in both governing and in promoting his business interests while in office. The Republican Congress has caved in fear of offending him, like the parliaments of countries such as Russia. He is incompetent in foreign affairs and his “loose-cannon” temperament poses the danger of self-declaring war while a paralyzed Republican controlled Congress sits by and tolerates his conduct. He has alienated our allies and diminished our standing in the world community. Trump and his Republican allies pose a threat to the environment. In light of all that is at stake for our country, it is urgent for all people to vote, for not voting is to accept whatever happens, which we can already see is of severe negative consequence. VOTE BLUE FOR YOU and your future and what you will leave behind for your loved ones. Arnold Tranes P.S. - #9 . 10/27/2018. More yet. Now we're seeing extreme violence incited by Trump's fiery rhetoric: (a) A domestic terrorist attempting to murder two former Presidents and other Democrats with pipe bombs, which Trump blamed on the media, and (b) A mass murder of Jewish worshippers, which Trump blamed on "not having an armed guard inside", and denying guns as an issue though a military grade assault rifle was used. What will it take to stop all this? YOU, ME AND WE HAVE TO VOTE! One more for the road: "THE PRICE OF APATHY TOWARDS PUBLIC AFFAIRS IS TO BE RULED BY EVIL MEN". -PLATO

https://youtu.be/4Q3U_8_bjXk https://youtu.be/oxBiGn7exds https://youtu.be/SvpaLMArg1s Mr. Wilcher, Thank you for your inquiry as to whether school boards are exempt from open meetings and sunshine laws. All “meetings” of “governing bodies” are subject to the Tennessee Open Meetings Act (“TOMA”). Tenn. Code Ann. § 8-44-102(a). “Governing body” is generally defined under TOMA as the members of any public body which consists of two or more members, with the authority to make decisions for or recommendations to a public body on policy or administration. Tenn. Code Ann. § 8-44-102(b). A public body to which TOMA applies includes any board, commission, committee, agency, authority or any other body, by whatever name, whose origin of authority may be traced to state, city or county legislative action. Hastings v. South Cent. Human Resource Agency, 829 S.W.2d 679 (Tenn. Ct. App. 1992). School boards are generally considered a “governing body” subject to the Open Meetings Act. See Neese v. Paris Special School Dist. 813 S.W.2d 432 (Tenn. Ct. App. 1990); Hampton v. Macon County Bd. Of Education, 2014 WL 107971 (Tenn. Ct. App. 2014); Van Hooser v. Warren County Bd.

Just curious if anyone on here can help me with something? I'm doing some family history research, except I'm trying to find/uncover some historical pieces that haven't been documented yet. One of which is where my great-great-grandfather is buried. William Michael Lovell died prior to 1900 in Crockett County. His great-granddaughter said she visited the grave site back in the day, but she now lives in Kansas. She said "it's on a country road - in a grove of trees in the middle of a cotton field - nowhere to pull off the road - four graves in all." She used to travel from Hwy 221 to Bells, TN each day for work and would drive past the gravesite. She got on Google Maps to try to figure out where it is and she thinks she's got the right spot, but I'm in St. Louis so I can't just drive there myself. Anyone on here able to help me out - go check it out in person, or put me in touch with someone who knows the history of the area? Or direct me to anyone who can track land ownership? The area looks right, but it seems to be a retention pond. I guess they could still be buried there. If it's not there then it's in the area (I circled another possible spot). Again, I'm looking for help trying to locate the family burial plot for William Michael Lovell and his wife Sarah Stanley. I have distant Lovell family in the area, but no one I know in person.
