WCS Update: Report Cards Mailed to Families

Williamson County Schools

UPDATE: 6.6.14

Parents of students in grades 3-8 should expect to receive their child’s report card in the coming days.  Hundreds of Williamson County teachers returned to school June 4 to finalize grades and prepare report cards following the Tennessee Department of Education’s delayed release of TCAP scores.

“As always, teachers, principals, office staff and district instructional support rose to the occasion and made an uncommon experience seem routine,” said WCS Instructional Technology Coordinator Belinda Moss.  “These dedicated individuals demonstrated the relentless spirit always shining in Williamson County Schools.  We can’t say thank you enough to our employees and to our parents who have patiently waited to receive report cards.”

The last of the report cards were placed in the mail today, June 6.  In the meantime, report cards can be viewed online in Parent Portal.

Original Story 5.23.14

Donna Vissman attended this morning’s special school board meeting in Franklin where the board unanimously voted to include TCAP scores with the students grades. The Department of Education notified school districts on May 20 that scores would not be released on time.  By law, TCAP scores are part of the student’s final grade in grades three through eight . Teachers will return to school on June 4th to enter the TCAP grades making them available to students and parents on June 5th.  By having teachers return to school to enter grades, it will cost the district $113,617 and was approved in a budget resolution this morning.  Mike Looney, director of schools, has asked for the State to reimburse the county for the delay due to no fault of the Williamson County School System.
