Department of Education Releases State Report Card

From WCS inFocus

The Tennessee Department of Education (TDOE) released the state report card December 4.

“Overall, our schools are among the top performing schools in the state,” said WCS Superintendent Dr. Mike Looney. “I continue to be proud of our students, teachers and administrators.”

As a whole, the graduation rate of Williamson County Schools students is higher than the 2016-2017 school year, and the overall student growth received the highest rating possible, a five.

“The Report Card simply provides a dashboard of key information about every school and district in the state,” said WCS Assessment Analyst Kevin Deck. “The report card contains a variety of metrics ranging from students’ academic performance to how often students are missing school.”

The report card groups the information into six categories and each school receives a rating, ranging from zero to four, in each of these categories. Each rating is based either on how well the school is doing on that metric or how much it improved in the past year, with the school getting the higher rating between the two.

Parents can click a link for each category to see even more information about the rating, providing additional context to the single score. Examples include how specific student groups are performing, historical trends, and comparisons to the state and district.
