TCAP Scores Show Improvements For Robertson County Students
SPRINGFIELD TENNESSEE: (Smokey Barn News)This week, school districts across the state released student assessment data for the 2014 – 2015 school year. The Tennessee Department of Education TCAP assessments are tests that measure student progress based on core content and yearly growth in reading/language arts, math, and science.
The Robertson County School District is pleased to announce that for the 2014 – 2015 school year, our students achieved significant gains in several areas including: 3rd – 8th grade Math, Algebra 2, English 1, 2, and 3, and Chemistry.
Learning gaps narrowed in our Economically Disadvantaged subgroup and our Black/Hispanic/Native American subgroup for grades 3-8 language arts and math. Learning gaps also narrowed in Algebra 1, in our Special Education and Black/Hispanic/Native American subgroups.
The graduation rate for Robertson County Schools is 95.1%, which is the highest it has ever been. The 2016 senior class already has 30 more students than the 205 senior class that have met at least 3 of the college ready benchmarks on the ACT with more opportunities to take it during the upcoming year.
Direct of Schools, Mike Davis, stated that, “We are very proud of the accomplishments our students and teachers have made over the past year, and we look forward to the challenges the new school year presents. Through professional development and rigorous standards, our teachers and students are up to the task of making Robertson County Schools and exemplary district in our state.”
One of the district’s goals for the 2015 – 2016 school year is to continue the path of helping our students become college and career ready. Please continue in partnering with us, as we strive to be One district..One community…One mission.
