(NASHVILLE) — State Representative Curtis Halford (R-Dyer) today congratulated eight area school systems in House District 79 that have been identified as Top 10 districts in achievement and/or improvement during the latest round of TNReady testing.

- Gibson County Special School District (5-8th grade science and math achievement; high school math achievement)

- Trenton (3-5th grade English language arts improvement; 6-8th grade science improvement)
- West Carroll (7-8th grade English language arts improvement; high school science achievement)
“These remarkable accomplishments are the result of the tireless effort and energy invested by our students, educators, and staff members at these fine institutions over the last several years,” said Representative Halford. “I want to congratulate them and the parents of our school children for making these great strides academically, and I know that the real reward is the educational success that awaits our students in future years.”
