This is a reminder that your Class of 2018 TN Promise students’ mandatory meeting will be on Wednesday, March 21, 2018 at 5:30 p.m. at Roane County High School in the new cafeteria. The tnAchieves staff member facilitating the meeting will arrive early to set up, so please ensure the space is unlocked and ready for set up beginning at 4:00 p.m. If tnAchieves could have access to a microphone and extra tables for sign in and post-secondary information, that would be great!
Sign in will begin at 4:45 p.m., so we are encouraging students to arrive no later than 5:00 p.m. to ensure adequate time for sign in. At this meeting, students will learn more about the TN Promise college eligibility requirements, college enrollment processes from local post-secondary institutions and tnAchieves mentors will be in attendance to begin working with your students. The meeting will last one hour in duration.
It is mandatory for students to attend this meeting in order to remain eligible for TN Promise. Parents are encouraged to attend but cannot attend for the student. We ask that you or another staff member attend the team meeting as well! If a student has an excusable absence (see policy #2 on pg. 41 of the student handbook), the student must follow the excuse form protocol highlighted on page 8 of the student handbook and complete a meeting excuse form. tnAchieves must receive a completed meeting excuse form any time prior to the meeting or within 72 hours of the conclusion of the student’s assigned team meeting in order for the excuse to be considered. A student’s failure to attend the mandatory meeting will result in the loss of the student’s TN Promise scholarship. If a student is approved to miss their assigned meeting, the student will be required to attend another institution’s meeting to satisfy the mandatory meeting requirement. A full list of mandatory meetings can be found here.
If school is cancelled or released early the day of the meeting, the TN Promise meeting will be rescheduled and students, parents and mentors will be notified via email. If your district is released early or cancelled for inclement weather, please notify me at 865.898.0538 or firstname.lastname@example.org so we can work on rescheduling the meeting for a later date.
