SULLIVAN COUNTY, Tenn. -

Sullivan County has exceeded expectations set by the Tennessee Department of Education, but there is still some work to do.

Of the 11 achievement targets set by the state, Sullivan County exceeded expectations in seven areas. We're also told they showed overall growth in eight additional areas.

However, the county did not meet expectations in third grade math, English II and English III.
