Welcome to Bledsoe County Schools

AS A RESULT OF THE DECISIONS MADE AT THE MAY 1ST, 2017 BOARD MEETING, THE BLEDSOE COUNTY BOARD OF EDUCATION HAS RELEASED THE FOLLOWING STATEMENT:

Bledsoe County Board of Education made cuts to its 2017-2018 budgeted expenditures due to a decrease in student enrollment, which resulted in a decrease in state funding.  As a result of the decrease in state funding, 2 1/2 certified teaching positions were eliminated from the budget.  The system eliminated an elementary teaching position at Cecil B Rigsby Elementary School, General Music at Bledsoe County Middle School and the Band Program at Bledsoe County High School.  Last year, the system was forced to eliminate a high school math teaching position, a middle school teaching position, a teaching position at Cecil B Rigsby Elementary, and a teaching position at Mary V Wheeler Elementary.  The system continues to offer a high school music program which includes: Concert Choir, Music History, and Guitar and Keyboard/Piano Class. We will also continue to offer a Drama Program.  Elimination of teaching positions and any of our arts programs or any program that benefits our students is a difficult, challenging, and struggle-filled decision and made only after consideration of the Board's obligation to provide the best possible education to all 1,600 plus students in our system.
