Grundy County

At 46th, Grundy County is in the top half of Tennessee counties in child well-being. Some of
the county’s strongest rankings include that there were no school suspensions and no
pregnancies among girls age 15 to 17. The county’s biggest challenges are its low rates of
proficiency on TNReady tests of reading and of math for students in 3rd to 8th grade.

Additional strengths include a relatively low rate of babies born at a low birthweight and
one of the higher rates of high school graduation.

Additional opportunities for improvement include a low median household income and the
fact that over a third of the county’s children live in poverty.

Policy/Practice/Program Options to Improve Outcomes. Many of these policies have multiple


models for delivery, including public-private partnership and non-profit leadership.

• Increased access to pre-K can help both math and reading proficiency in later
grades. Early assessment of reading skills coupled with appropriate interventions
where needed can improve reading proficiency, while increasing STEM
opportunities in elementary and middle schools can help improve 3rd to 8th grade
math proficiency.
• Counties can support children who live in poverty by improving outreach to those
who may qualify to receive SNAP, WIC and/or TennCare benefits to be sure they are
aware of these services. Additionally, nutrition programs that provide food for
school-age children to take home can contribute to nutritionally sound diets.
Expanding services through Family Resource Centers can also help reach these
vulnerable populations.
