Unfortunately, the Learning Lodge STEM center is still under repair with an opening date yet to be determined. All scheduled parties must be canceled, and we will not be taking reservations at this time. We hope to bring an exciting refreshment to the facility and create a higher level of engagement for the students in our school system.

What is the Affordable Connectivity Program?

The Affordable Connectivity Program (ACP) is a U.S. government program run by the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) program to help low-income households pay for internet service and connected devices like a laptop or tablet.

You are likely eligible if your household’s income is below 200% of the Federal Poverty Line, or if you or someone you live with currently receives a government benefit like SNAP, Medicaid, SSI, WIC, Pell Grant, or Free and Reduced-Price Lunch (The Scott County Schools are CEP and all students receive free lunches).

At Thursday night's School Board Meeting, Dr. Dale Lynch, Executive Director of the Tennessee Organization of School Superintendents (TOSS), presented Director Bill Hall with the 2023 East Tennessee Superintendent of the Year award. 

Congratulations Coach Hall!
