Department of Education Recognizes Five District Schools As Top Tier
Posted on 08/16/2019

On Wednesday, Aug. 15, the Tennessee Department of Education released their statewide evaluation information from the 2018-2019 school year. Robertson County Schools is proud to announce that 5 district schools were designated as Reward Schools, which is the highest level of distinction a school can earn in the state. These RCS schools are:

 

Coopertown Middle School

Crestview Elementary School

Krisle Elementary School

White House Heritage Elementary School

White House Heritage High School

 

Reward schools are those that are improving overall student academic achievement and student growth for all students and for student groups, and they are identified annually.        

 

Additionally, the district earned the distinction of “Advancing,” a higher evaluation than last year’s, “Satisfactory,” rating. 

 

TVAAS, or Tennessee Value Added Assessment System, scores were also released.  These scores show the growth that students made based on their peers across the state and range from 1 to 5.  Robertson County has improved its Overall TVAAS Score from 1 to 3.  For its Literacy, the district improved from 1 to 4, and the math improved from 2 to 3. 

 

While the district did have one ATSI (Additional Target Support and Improvement) designated school, (Springfield High School) it is important to note that this school still scored a 5 in Literacy.

 

Dr. Chris Causey, Director of Schools commented on the district’s achievement saying, “It is important to celebrate when the data reflects the hard work of our students, teachers, and staff.  Two years ago, we were, ‘In Need of Improvement.’  We are so proud of the growth we have seen over the last couple of years, of moving up one designation level per year.  As we begin the new school-year, this progress gives us a great jump-start to becoming an Exemplary school system.”
