Tennessee Curriculum Standards

What is the curriculum?

 

Tennessee academic standards are accessible on the state’s web site please visit: http://tn.gov/education/topic/academic-standards

 

The CMCSS Curriculum Navigator is a resource for parents and community members to access the Tennessee State Standards. Tennessee schools use these standards in developing lesson plans for students.

 

On the Curriculum Navigator, you are able to view the standards across grade levels and core content areas. Parents and community members can see how each student’s daily instruction is aligned with achieving a deep understanding of the respective content area.

 

You simply click on the respective grade level/content area and are immediately able to access your student’s standards for the respective classes.

http://curriculum.cmcss.net/public/index.aspx

 

 

How will the Tennessee Standards be assessed?

 

Beginning in the 2015-16 school year, the state will provide a new and improved TCAP test for English language arts and math in grades 3-11. It will provide us with more and better information about our students’ progress. The new TCAP tests are designed to assess true student understanding and not just basic memorization and test-taking skills.

 

The new TCAP will measure student understanding of our current state standards in English language arts and math, not the previous Student Performance Indicators (SPIs).

Rossview Middle, High Morning Traffic Changes

We are making improvements to morning traffic patterns at the Rossview Middle and High School complex. Students will receive maps of the newly designed traffic flow pattern today, or by accessing these links:

 

Student Map:    http://www.cmcss.net/news/rossviewtraffic/student.jpg

 

Parent Map:       http://www.cmcss.net/news/rossviewtraffic/parent.jpg

 

Dual Delivery (dropping off at Middle AND High School:

http://www.cmcss.net/news/rossviewtraffic/dualdelivery.pdf

 

The new design goes into effect on Tuesday, September 8 at 6:45 a.m. and is designed to relieve traffic congestion. The main reason for this change is due to the construction at Exit 8, which creates hazardous conditions of traffic backing up on I-24.

 

After receiving feedback from law enforcement and stakeholders, we have tried to determine the safest flow for students, parents, staff and visitors.

 

For morning delivery, middle school parents and high school student drivers delivering middle school students should enter at Cardinal Lane. This does not change the drop off at the middle school. A left turn from Rossview Road is allowed into the high school entrance from eastbound Rossview Road for parent delivery of high school students only. For student drivers going to the high school, all eastbound Rossview Road and Dunbar Cave Road drivers should enter at Cardinal Lane and travel around the middle school to the student parking lot. Westbound student drivers should make a right turn in to the high school entrance and proceed to the parking lot.

 

Vehicles no longer will be able to drive between the middle and high schools to allow school buses to move safely between the two schools.

 

AGAIN, this plan only will impact morning delivery. Please look online or review the map your student received today for clarification.

 

This plan will greatly improve the traffic flow efficiency and safety of our students. We appreciate your patience as we work through this process.
