The Tennessee Department of Education has released the 2021-22 State Report Card, an online tool designed for parents, families and education stakeholders to understand how Tennessee’s districts and schools are serving students.
The State Report Card provides families and other stakeholders information about how Tennessee schools and districts are performing to inform decisions and strategic investments to best support students.
“With the release of the State Report Card, Tennessee continues our firm commitment to providing families with clear, actionable information on how our districts and schools are serving students,” said Commissioner Penny Schwinn. “The Report Card allows stakeholders to access years worth of meaningful data through an interactive, easy-to-navigate online platform, and now the latest data is available to help Tennesseans to explore and learn about their local schools and districts” she said.
This year’s State Report Card contains general information and state, district, and school-level data, including enrollment, finance, and staffing. The State Report Card includes the following performance indicators; academic achievement, growth (district and school level only), absenteeism, and progress on English language proficiency, ready graduate, and graduation rate.
The 2021-22 State Report Card has been improved and contains several new features, including:
· Improved usability and accessibility across district and school pages
· Improved interactive visualization
· Redesigned overall performance and information pages
· Filter functions for school/district designations and distinctions
· New badges for school designations and school/district distinctions
· Google Translate option
“The Tennessee State Report Card is an informative tool to assist Cannon County Schools in the use of data and to find opportunities to aid our students and educators,” William Freddy Curtis, Director of Schools, Cannon County Schools, said. “As educators, we gain valuable knowledge from assessing and adjusting our strategies to assist our students for the best possible educational outcome, and the report card aids us to demonstrate whether our plans have benefited our students. It also assists us in observing how Cannon County Schools are doing in comparison to the State of Tennessee as a whole,” he said.
