SHELBY COUNTY, TN -

(WMC-TV) – After one week under his belt as Bartlett Municipal Schools Superintendent, David Stephens is working to pave a path of cooperation between all seven area school districts.

The former deputy superintendent for Shelby County Schools says the municipal superintendents have a standing weekly meeting to get on one accord not only to find savings, but also to brainstorm as they take on the task of launching new school systems.
