University-Assisted Community School in Tennessee Featured in Phi Delta Kappa Magazine


A unique university-school partnership in Knoxville is featured in the March issue of Kappan Magazine, the flagship journal for the professional educators association Phi Delta Kappa.
Two years ago, the University of Tennessee partnered with Pond Gap Elementary in a low-income, large-immigrant population section of Knoxville. The Title I school has 320 students from 20 different countries with nearly 90 percent of students receiving free or reduced lunch.
Through its partnership with the university, Pond Gap now provides an afterschool program open to students five days a week throughout the entire year. The school was also outfitted a new washer and dryers for students’ families and provides ELL and GED classes for parents.
