Check PowerSchool Attendance Weekly

Parents, please remember to check your child’s attendance on PowerSchool weekly, or after you have sent in a note. We have a very small window of time for making corrections, and we want your child’s attendance record to be 100% accurate. Sometimes notes don’t make it to the Attendance Office for one reason or another.
Emails (to,, or are always a good way to send a note or follow-up on a written note. Weekly checks will hopefully prevent situations at the end of the grading period, the semester, or the year, where we have inaccurate information and lack the ability to make changes.
Students, you can also monitor your attendance on PowerSchool and let us know about errors. This is good practice for second semester when you want to remain eligible for exam exemptions at the end of the year.

Principal's Message

Monday, September 24th, 2018
I am proud to announce that Bartlett Academy, along with Bartlett High School, Bon Lin Middle, Ellendale Elementary, and Oak Elementary, were named Tennessee Reward Schools for 2018 by the State of Tennessee. I am always proud of the work my faculty and staff do everyday, and this is recognition of that work.  But this didn’t just happen because of the work that goes on inside our building for seven hours a day, five days a week.
This goes back to the dream, the planning, and the commitment by Mayor Keith McDonald and the Bartlett Aldermen. This goes back to the vision of our Bartlett City Schools Board of Education and Superintendent Stephens. This goes back to the work of our District Office - Teaching and Learning, Student Services, Operations, and Finance, whose work to support our schools may go unnoticed by many, but is never unappreciated by those of us in the schools.
As principal of the Academy, I have to give much credit to the amazing faculty and staff that I have the privilege of working with each day. I happen to think they are the best, but I’m sure that every principal in every school in Bartlett would say the same thing about their own faculty and staff. I also have to recognize the tremendous support we get from our parents and the Bartlett community as a whole. They lift us up and support us in so many ways, large and small. Most importantly, they entrust us with their children everyday, and we are thankful for that. That brings me to my most important thank you, which is to my students and former students. It’s the work they do each day that makes us successful. Nothing we do as educators really matters if that doesn’t happen.
So, as a principal I get the privilege of announcing this for my school. And I have the privilege of congratulating my fellow principals at BHS, Bon Lin Middle, Ellendale, and Oak. I’m proud of the work we do at the Academy, and I’m proud of the work we do all across this district. But over and above being proud, I have an even stronger feeling of gratitude for everyone in BCS and Bartlett who works to make us successful every day.
John McDonald, Principal

Katie Pennington, BHS graduate, Class of 2018, Donates her Senior Capstone Project to the Academy

Katie Pennington, BHS graduate, Class of 2018, dropped off her Senior Capstone Project at the Academy on her way to her freshman year at UT Knoxville. Katie will major in Architecture at UT, and is considering a minor in Urban Studies. Katie was in the First Class of the Academy, and was a member of the first Honors Academy cohort. Her Capstone Project is a 3' X 3' small greenhouse made with repurposed materials, including some antique glass. The capstone project fulfilled her commitment to that program. She also played on the BHS Soccer team all four years at BHS. Thanks, Katie, for sharing a bit of your BHS legacy with us.
