Elizabethton City Schools (ECS) encourages parents to have an active role in the education of their children. We believe all stakeholders (parents, teachers, administrators, business, and community leaders) should work together to create a culture and climate that fosters academic success by:

  • setting appropriate goals at the school and system-level that are attainable, rigorous, and content-driven.
  • developing school and system plans that are living documents that drive the educational process.
  • reviewing and updating these plans to reflect data and outcomes associated with testing and weekly formative assessments.
  • working with parents, community partners, and other stakeholders to help our children thrive during their time with us and prepare them to be successful in the future.
