According to Kimi Sucharski, district data analyst for accountability:

“Using the performance levels 1-5 and the growth index, those are the two indicators by which districts are evaluated. Each district receives a growth composite – the level of growth scored at 1-5 and a growth index, which is an indication of the growth experienced.”

She added, “This provides the district with how it is performing, compared with other districts.  The data is available on the public Tennessee Value Added Assessment System (TVAAS) website, https://tvaas.sas.com/welcome.html?as=c .”

According to Dr. B.J. Worthington, director of schools:

“We can attribute this accomplishment to our teachers and administrators recognizing where every student is academically and ensuring that they make appropriate grade level growth throughout the year.  Parental support is key to making sure students are successful and this community is so supportive of this school system. They demonstrate that in so many ways: volunteer hours and donation of resources.”

“We celebrate this success, but recognize that tomorrow we start with the new Tennessee standards and prepare for a new assessment that will be given at the end of the year. The academic bar has been raised with the new standards and the assessment, TNReady, will be much more rigorous.”

“Within CMCSS, we have provided staff development for our teachers and administrators to best prepare our students to be college and career ready through the standards. And we will continue to provide that support throughout the school year.”
