Robertson County Superintendent had this to say, “I am very proud of my students and staff. Last spring, I challenged my students and these results are proof that they accepted the challenge. The credit for these scores goes to staff and students. This is a huge accomplishment for the entire community and our students have earned the right to celebrate, and as soon as that is over we will be getting back to work to make sure that we have just begun to show what Robertson County students are capable of doing.”
