What information can people find on their school district website in Tennessee?

This page captured a snapshot of the information contributed by Sunshine Review users after they've studied the information made available on Tennessee school district websites.

See also: School districts websites, state-by-state comparison, to compare what you can find on Tennessee' school district websites to what can be found on school district websites in other states.

Reading the chart

In the chart below:

600px-Yes check.png means that information is included on the government website
600px-Red x.png means that the information was not provided on the government website
means that information was partially provided

Check the Sunshine Review page about each school district for more detailed information about what information is available on the school district website, along with recommendations SR users have made for positive changes.

Conclusions chart


In May of 2012, Sunshine Review evaluated the 11 most populous school districts for website transparency. We chose to evaluate 11 districts instead of 10 because Memphis School District is being merged with Shelby in 2013-2014. The average grade for the school district websites was a C- (51.5%).

Taxes? Budget? Meetings? Elected officials? Admin. Officials? Contracts? Audits? Public records? Academics? Background checks?
