The state released results last week on TVAAS growth across the state. For the 2016-17 school year, TVAAS results remained stable and consistent through the transition to TNReady. Additionally, 55 school districts, more than a third of Tennessee’s districts, earned overall TVAAS composites of Level 5, the highest level of growth. Notably, this includes districts with a wide range of academic achievement and student demographics. And, in 2016-17, fewer districts earned Level 1 and Level 2 scores, showing that more districts have students who are growing at or above the expected amount. These results point to the ability for all students to grow. Lincoln County Schools earned a TVAAS Composite of a Level 5. The districts teachers and students are commended on a job well done.
