State Representatives Susan Lynn & Clark Boyd, Department of Education Announce Critical Growth Funds

(NASHVILLE) — State Representative Susan Lynn (R-Mount Juliet), State Representative Clark Boyd (R-Lebanon), and the Tennessee Department of Education today announced that Wilson County Schools and Lebanon Special School District have both received district growth funding to support education initiatives in Wilson County.

Specifically, Wilson County Schools received $746,000 and Lebanon Special School District received $176,500.

This funding is a direct result of a Republican-led effort to not only fully fund education in Tennessee but also provide an additional $18 million towards school district growth.

These significant investments in many Tennessee school districts will allow growing schools to maintain the necessary resources so that they can continue offering quality education for our state’s young leaders.

“We have made education a priority of the House Finance Committee; we’ve increased funding for K-12 education by over $1.2 billion over the last 7 years while cutting taxes for hardworking Tennesseans.  Wilson County has great schools, and these much needed additional funds help our fast growing districts,” said Representative Lynn.

“Providing a quality education for this next generation of Tennesseans is a top priority for me. I am honored and proud to work with my Republican colleagues as we continue that fight today and every day,” said Representative Boyd.

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.
