Handy Resources for Parents and Students

Student Driving

  • Compulsory Attendance Letter

    Students wishing to acquire a learner's permit must obtain a compulsory attendance letter as proof of school attendance - unless you already have a valid driver's permit issued by the state of Tennessee. If you obtained a license or permit from another state or if your Tennessee permit has expired, then you will need the letter.

    Check Points Driving Courses

    Williamson County Schools requires that all NEW drivers complete the Checkpoints Driving Course PRIOR to driving on campus. The purpose of the course is to educate parents and students about the prevention of distracted driving and thus reduce the risk of accidents. For more information, contact Mr. Serbin, our Check Points coordinator.

Classroom Supplies: Gearing Up and Being Prepared Each Day

  • At the high school level, teachers do not issue supply lists by school grades.  Rather, individual teachers list their course-specific supply expectations in their syllabi, which they distribute at the beginning of each school year or semester (depending on whether the course is full-year or only one semester in length).

    In general, however, students should have the following supplies every day:

    • Pen or Pencil
    • Eraser
    • Paper (notebook and/or graph paper for math classes)
    • Notebook or folder for each class

    Other equipment that often comes in handy may include the following:

    • Markers or colored pencils
    • Post It notes
    • Index cards
    • Paper clips
    • Correction tape or fluid
    • Ruler or straight edge
    • Graphing calculator (for math and science classes)

    Note:  Families do not have to purchase calculators for their children; students may check these out from the library when they check out textbooks during grade level “Comeback” days.  Should you wish to purchase your own calculator, however, you should first check standardized test guidelines for acceptable models for testing.

    Students needing assistance in getting school supplies should contact the Counseling Center at (615) 472-2358.

    Note:  An excellent time to shop for school supplies and clothing is the annual sales tax holiday right before students return to school.  We will post information about the state sales tax holiday on the Parent Resources page every summer.  In addition to the tales tax benefits, many stores offer additional sales and special discounts at that time.
