Click on the announcement banner above to keep up with new positive COVID-19 cases for students and employees of Meigs County Schools. This data may be different than information reported due to the timing of reporting or other factors. In addition, this data may be different than county-level information reported by the Tennessee Department of Health due to timing of reporting, the fact that positive cases are reported by TDH only after laboratory confirmation, or other factors. To protect individual privacy, schools with fewer than 50 students are not reported in this data.


Due to the challenges COVID-19 has placed on school systems across the country and because of the learning loss gaps that have occurred as a result of missed instructional time, Meigs County Schools has been afforded an opportunity to apply for ESSER funding. This funding will be applied to two main categories: academics - to ensure all students have access to high-quality educational opportunities - and student readiness - to equip and serve the academic and non-academic needs of all students. In order to develop a plan for this funding, we are seeking input from our community partners and stakeholders including: families, students, teachers, administrators, advocacy organizations, businesses, community members, health professionals, etc. This feedback should include information to help us design a multi-year recovery plan aligned to maximize these one-time funds for the needs of our students. We are asking the public to complete a short survey to provide input on current needs and suggestions for valuable investments we can include in our plan to best benefit our students.


The Meigs County Schools Foundational Literacy Skills Plan has been approved by TDOE. We would like to thank the Early Literacy committee for their hard work developing this plan for the students of Meigs County. We look forward to supporting our teachers as they implement the components of this plan.

The Meigs County Board of Education is encouraging families to send their children to in-person learning for the 2021-2022 school year. Across the country, studies are showing a growing learning loss gap occurring with students that have been on virtual learning programs. This applies to any online learning including online home schools and remote learning. Meigs County schools will continue to offer remote learning options for those students who have documented health issues within the home. If you are interested in remote learning and feel you meet the criteria, please call our Principal or the Central Office during the month of May to see if you qualify. We will need to know by the end of May so we can set-up training for parents and student using Google Classroom and their school issued Chromebook.
