2019 District Accountability

Under Tennessee’s accountability system, districts must increase achievement levels for all students and show faster growth in achievement for the students who are furthest behind in order to narrow achievement gaps.

In 2018, there were several metrics that were included in district accountability for the first time, including English learner proficiency assessment data, chronic absenteeism, Ready Graduate data, science data, and the requirement of a 95% ACT or SAT participation rate, since taking either exam is required by state law to graduate from a Tennessee high school. Districts received a rating for both all students and for student groups, including students with disabilities, English learners, economically disadvantaged students, and black, Hispanic, and Native American students. Districts designated as exemplary are generally exceeding expectations on average for both all students and each historically underserved student group.

All school and district designations are pending State Board of Education approval pursuant to T.C.A. § 49-1-602.
