The Tennessee Department of Education released school-level standardized test scores Tuesday, revealing how Shelby County Schools and other schools in the state performed.
In July, the state announced broad trends for the year, revealing that test scores overall crept up this year. Three weeks ago, it unveiled scores by district, showing that Shelby County Schools and the state-run Achievement School District had made gains but continue to lag behind the rest of the state.
The state has now released data about individual schools’ performance — a measure that has high stakes for schools, educators, and communities.
The state uses school-level scores to decide which schools to take over or otherwise overhaul, and districts use the scores to decide which schools to close. By law, test scores must also factor in teacher and principal evaluations, and school-wide scores are used to rate teachers in subjects where there is no single state test.
