A $3.5 million comprehensive plan by the state to transform principal leadership in Tennessee schools was announced with Warren County’s Director of Schools Bobby Cox in attendance. “The new program will be of great benefit to rural schools in that it will allow current principals to develop a network of principals in other communities and will provide funding for current principals to attend professional development opportunities to help them continue developing their skills as a school teacher,” said Cox. “With a possible cut in federal funds this year that would eliminate some of our professional development money, this new funding will help tremendously.”
