Preliminary TCAP scores show significant improvement across Cleveland City Schools

Cleveland, TN - The Tennessee Department of Education (TDOE) has released the 2021-22 Tennessee Comprehensive Assessment Program (TCAP) preliminary results for school systems across the Volunteer State. Cleveland City Schools’ commitment and dedication to academic excellence are reflected in the data from these assessments.

Our district English proficiency rates have exceeded pre-pandemic levels. In Mathematics, students' scores increased across the district. Early data from these assessments show exceptional growth in English and Math scores from grade bands 3-5, 6-8, and 9-12.

We know it’s been a challenging year providing additional support and resources following the coronavirus pandemic, which contributed to learning loss for students across the state. Our school system continues to show evidence of students’ growth and preparation for the future.

Dr. Russell Dyer, Director of Schools, stated, “I am extremely grateful and proud of the work our educators have done to ensure student learning is a top priority of our district and schools. Results show that what we are doing is increasing mastery of learning and I fully expect to see that trajectory to continue. Thank you to our teachers, staff, students, school board, and families for your continued support and engagement.”

These results reflect Cleveland City Schools’ commitment to student achievement, which was honored earlier this year as one of 68 districts recognized as “Best for All” by the Tennessee Department of Education.

The Tennessee Department of Education will release official accountability data and determinations with Tennessee Value-Added Assessment System (TVAAS) results on August 15th.
