Cleveland City Schools Is Level 4 TVAAS School System

Thursday, August 15, 2019

Cleveland City Schools announces they are an Advancing District as measured by the Tennessee Department of Education.  This designation stems from TCAP testing in grades three through 11, which took place during the 2018-19 school year. Advancing is the second highest designation in the state.  Furthermore, the district is a Level 4 TVAAS school system according to TDOE for that same testing cycle.  

The state website says, “The Tennessee Value-Added Assessment System measures student growth year over year, regardless of whether the student is proficient on the state assessment. In calculating a TVAAS score, a student’s performance is compared relative to the performance of his or her peers who have performed similarly on past assessments.”  TVAAS measures student growth by looking at student performance in five subject areas.

"A highlight of last year’s testing results are our district literacy scores," officials said.  "Our overall literacy TVAAS score was a Level V for the 2018-19 school year. Our focus on Lucy Calkins writing and literacy showed huge dividends for our students." 

Another highlight was Blythe-Bower Elementary School moving from a Level 1 TVAAS score in 2017-18 to a Level 4 status in 2018-19. Cleveland Middle School also maintained their Level 5 status again this past year.  

Dr. Dyer stated, “Our goal is to ensure each student is prepared to be college, career, and life ready by the time they graduate from our system.  I’m proud of what we have accomplished, but we have more to do. We will celebrate our favorable results and continue to find ways to help each student find success in our district."
