The Tennessee Department of Education has released its statewide report card, providing school districts with data from the 2012 school year.
There are several noteworthy achievements for the Clarksville-Montgomery County School System thanks to the hard work of school administrators, teachers, students, parents and community.
CMCSS once again is pleased with its graduation rate, climbing to an all-time high of 95.2 percent. With community support and the 100% graduation is Clarksville’s Business initiative, the rate has improved from 76% in 2003 to the record high for the 2012 graduation year.
CMCSS overall achievement is good and has shown solid improvements. In TVAAS (value added or growth measurement data), CMCSS students have improved in reading and science. Because the TVAAS is calculated on a three-year average, CMCSS is impacted by the 2010 scores, which were low due to the re-normed and recalibrated test on more difficultstandards. CMCSS joins many other systems across the state in low seventh grade science results.
