State Representative JohnRagan, Department of Education Announce Critical Growth Funds

(NASHVILLE) — State Representative John Ragan (R-Oak Ridge) and the Tennessee Department of Education announced district growth funding for Clinton City Schools to support education initiatives in the county.

Specifically, Clinton County Schools received $95,000.

This funding is a direct result of a Republican-led effort by Tennessee General Assembly members to not only fully fund education in Tennessee but also provide $18 million to cover school district growth as part of Governor Bill Haslam’s Fiscal Year 2018 budget.

These significant investments will allow many of our state’s school districts with soaring populations to maintain proper student to teacher ratios so that they can continue offering quality education for our next generation of leaders.

“Education has to be at the core of all we do,” said Representative Ragan. “By providing for our many growing school districts, we continue to ensure quality education and resources for our students.”

This funding has been so well received by parents, education officials, and teachers that Tennessee Governor Bill Haslam added another $18 million in growth funds to his proposed Fiscal Year 2019 budget.

John Ragan is Vice-Chair of the House Government Operations Committee and the Joint Government Operations Education, Health & General Welfare Subcommittee. He is also a member of the House Health Committee and Subcommittee, as well as the Joint Government Operations Committee. Ragan lives in Oak Ridge and represents District 33, which includes part of Anderson County. He can be reached at [email protected] or by calling (615) 741-4400.
