Welcome to Wilson County Schools
This is an announcement for Dr. Timothy R. Setterlund Director of Schools for the Wilson County Board of Education. Wilson County Schools will be closing 2 hours early today Friday, December 06, 2013 due to inclement weather moving into our area and the possibility for the development of hazardous road conditions. The two hour early dismissal means that schools that normally dismiss at 2:15 will now be closing at 12:15, schools that dismiss at 3:15 will now dismiss at 1:15, schools that dismiss at 2:20 will now dismiss at 12:20 and schools that dismiss at 2:45 will now dismiss at 12:45. Extended day care services will remain on their normal schedule.

The Wilson County School System is committed to excellence in all areas of education. The system strives to obtain the best teachers and administrators possible. Of the 1,187 people employed in positions that require state certification, over 50 percent have attained an educational degree at the Masters level or higher. All Wilson County Schools and the Board of Education are accredited by the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools Council on Accreditation and School Improvement.
The school system has lowered pupil-teacher ratios, employed reading and math coaches, increased the number of teaching assistants, and increased the number of counselors, added school nurses and a School Health Coordinator as a way of providing better service to the students of Wilson County.
Wilson County has worked to improve its delivery system of educational technology. Library/Media Centers, offices, and classrooms are wired for Internet access. Teachers and students use the technology in many new and exciting ways, including on-line and distance learning.
