Where do we go from here?

You may have heard about the statewide TNReady testing problems this week. Some of our students and staff also experienced frustration as a result of the state’s testing issues. Hopefully, the problems the state encountered have now been resolved. The testing program will continue as originally scheduled over the next couple of weeks. Because the results are important to plan each student’s academic path for the coming school year, I ask that everyone continue to give their best effort.

The information we receive from the tests is used to make a variety of decisions about students, including their class placement. Annually, goals are set for each student, and results on the TNReady tests are used to guide personalized instructional plans. Additionally, TNReady results become a part of a student’s permanent record.

While circumstances have been difficult at times and beyond any of our control, I am grateful our students and staff always go above and beyond to overcome the challenges they face! Thank you!
