Karns High School

Sources close to Karns High School have informed Brian's Blog that within the past two years the math proficiency scores have dropped 37%.

Clifford Davis, the principal of Karns was a math teacher before breaking into the administrative ranks as Principal at Cedar Bluff Middle School, several years ago. This school year is his third year as Principal at Karns. Cedar Bluff Middle school prior to Dr. Davis had exemplary test scores and during his time at Cedar Bluff, the school appeared on the Tennessee notice list due to failure to meet the No Child Left Behind benchmarks. Sources close to Cedar Bluff inform us that Cedar Bluff came off the list a year or two ago under the leadership of Principal Sonya Winstead.

Prior to Clifford Davis taking over as principal of Karns, it was led by former Powell High School Principal Diane Psihogios. Within the past two years the math proficiency scores that were established at Karns by Principal Psihogois have decreased 37%.
