(Aug. 15, 2019) The Tennessee Department of Education released the state’s report card data for Tennessee school districts today. As the state works to transition through the Every Student Succeeds Act (ESSA) requirements, TNReady legislations, standards and proficiency shifts, CMCSS continues to experience forward momentum in meeting the vision that all students graduate college and career ready.

Elementary and middle schools follow suit with positive trends in math achievement, chronic absenteeism, and elementary achievement,” according to Dr. Sean Impeartrice, Chief Academic Officer for CMCSS. “We have identified targeted areas of work as the state continues to improve the rigor of standards and demonstration of proficiency for the state of Tennessee. Our challenges include middle school English/Language […]
