It is a great accomplishment for any school to receive recognition as a Reward School and we are excited to have five in our district! All the hard work from last year paid off. It was a tough year for everyone involved. Thank you to our staff for working so hard last year, and this year, during the pandemic. We feel confident that students in Gibson County Special School District are in a place where they can get one of the best educations in the state because of our great teachers and staff. • GCSSD was named an exemplary district, only 1 of 7 in the state. • GCSSD also had TVAAS level 5 scores. This is the fifth straight year the district has scored level 5 on TVAAS. Since 2012/13 the district has been a level 5 except for one year, 2014/15. (There were no TVAAS scores in 2019/20.)

GCSSD will be offering COVID-19 tests at school for grades 5-12. Testing will only be done with parent permission and in the following circumstances: • For those who visit the nurse with COVID-like symptoms according to the Tennessee Department of Health (TDOH) School Decision Support Algorithm. • For those who need a test to return to school early from quarantine (day 5 and after, return on day 8, if no symptoms) • For those who require testing for school travel or athletics. Students tested at school must have a signed parental consent for permission to test. The tests done at school only test for COVID-19 and do not exclude other illnesses, so a health care providers evaluation will be needed for symptomatic students. Tests are not 100% accurate and false negatives and positives can occur. Symptomatic students will be given a rapid test first and if negative a 30-minute PCR.
