SUMNER COUNTY, TENN. (WSMV) - Sumner County parents will have one less thing to worry about as they get their children ready for the new school year.

The school board for Sumner County Schools unanimously voted and approved the budget for the 2020-2021 school year, which includes purchasing school supplies for students. 

The schools will be working to help financially support parents with students from K-8 by purchasing most of the supplies required for the students.

Parents will be only responsible for purchasing a calculator, headphones, protractor and a compass.

The district purchased supplies will be passed out to all students as they return to school in August. is now with you on the go! Get the latest news updates and video, 4WARN weather forecast, weather radar, special investigative reports, sports headlines and much more from News4 Nashville.
