W.A. Wright Elementary School Named a National ESEA Distinguished School
December 4th, 2020: The National Association of ESEA State Program Administrators (NAESPA) is pleased to announce that W.A. Wright Elementary School from Mt. Juliet, Tennessee has been named a National ESEA Distinguished School by the state education agency in Tennessee. W.A. Wright Elementary School is one of up to 100 schools throughout the country that is being nationally recognized for exceptional student achievement in 2020.
A project of the NAESPA, the National ESEA Distinguished Schools Program publicly recognizes qualifying federally funded schools for the outstanding academic achievements of their students. It highlights the efforts of schools across the country making significant improvements for their students. The program has been in place since 1996, showcasing the success of hundreds of schools in one of three categories:
- Category 1: Exceptional student performance and academic growth for two consecutive years
- Category 2: Closing the achievement gap between student groups for two or more consecutive years
- Category 3: Excellence in serving special populations of students (e.g. homeless, migrant, English learners, etc.)
The Elementary and Secondary Education Act (ESEA) provides additional resources for vulnerable students and federal grants to state educational agencies to improve the quality of public elementary and secondary education.
The Association is a membership organization made up of State ESEA Program Administrators, and their staff from each of the states and territories, charged with managing their state federal education program. They ensure compliance with federal regulations, but more importantly work to see that all children — especially those living in economically disadvantaged conditions — have the opportunity to receive a high-quality education.
NAESPA implements the National ESEA Distinguished Schools Program to highlight selected schools that have successfully used their ESEA federal funds to improve the education for all students–including economically disadvantaged students. More information about all National ESEA Distinguished Schools is available on the ESEA Network website: www.ESEAnetwork.org.

REMOTE LEARNING ANNOUNCEMENT:
W.A. Wright Elementary will transition to REMOTE LEARNING beginning on Monday, November 2nd until Friday, November 13th - with the intention for students to return in-person on Monday, November 16th. WAW will open and dismiss as normally scheduled on Friday, October 30th. This will serve as a day for students to get further instructions from their teachers and gather any belongings they may need during the Remote Learning period.
This transition is due to a recent rise in COVID-19 cases and mandatory quarantines. In addition, all W.A. Wright Elementary Kids Club activities are canceled during this Remote Learning period.
WAW and other proper district personnel will be in direct contact with parents, teachers, staff and students with any added special instructions and guidance during this time.
For any WAW families who need food services during this Remote Learning period, you can place orders with any other school cafeteria manager for the most convenient pick-up location for your family (excluding MJE & SCE due to recent closures). Those orders need to be submitted on the mornings of planned lunch pick-ups for that particular day.
Thank you for your patience and understanding as we continue to navigate with extreme caution through the ongoing pandemic.
