CMCSS Continues Forward Momentum with State Data Release

(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.

We will have to wait on the full release of data to form a complete picture of the School System’s performance,” said Director of Schools Millard House. The state will not be assigning grades to the 2018-19 data results. In addition, the new accountability system utilizes a scale based on a score of 0-4. Essentially an average score of 3.1 – 4 has a determination of “exemplary”, a score of 2.1 – 3.0 has a determination of “advancing”, a score of 1.1 – 2.1 has a determination of “satisfactory”,and a score less than 1.1 has a determination of “marginal”. “In reviewing the data as a district we see overall improvement in math and chronic absenteeism at all grade levels. As we evaluate high school data, CMCSS is experiencing positive momentum across all measures to include graduation rate, ready graduate, achievement, and chronic absenteeism. 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 […]
