Cleveland Schools Get Highest Rating In New TNReady Test Results

Thursday, August 16, 2018
Cleveland City Schools officials said its schools obtained the highest ratings in new testing released Thursday.
Officials said, "Earlier today, the Tennessee Department of Education lifted the embargo on TVAAS growth data related to last year’s TNReady testing.  Based on that data release, Cleveland City Schools has been designated as a Level 5 district, the highest rating in the Tennessee Value-Added Assessment System (TVAAS) system. 
"We are proud of these results and they would not be possible without the hard work and dedication of our students, teachers, administrators, staff, and families.  Additionally, our Cleveland City Schools Board of Education members support our efforts to move students forward academically, socially, and emotionally.
We are also proud of our schools and their individual effort to achieve student academic growth.  Below you will find a table for each school showing their TVAAS growth scores." 
Dr.
Russell Dyer, Director of Schools, stated, “We are pleased with the overall results of the TNReady testing from last year related to student growth.  However, we know we can’t remain stagnant and must press ahead and focus on our system goals.  Our aspiration is for each and every student to see academic growth from one year to the next.  Our professional educators are dedicated to this endeavor and I admire the work they do each day in our classrooms.”
