Elizabethton City Schools' TVAAS score indicates highest level of growth

Posted On: Monday, September 18, 2017

The Tennessee Value-Added Assessment System (TVAAS) score for Elizabethton City Schools indicates schools and teachers are having the highest impact on students’ academic progress. The system-wide composite score is a level five, the highest a school or system can earn. 

“I’m so proud of our teachers and students for their hard work and commitment to improvement,” said Dr. Corey Gardenhour. “A level five only happens when students are focused on their own personal and academic growth, and when teachers are using best practices to improve the way we meet students’ individual needs."

TVAAS reflects students’ growth and helps teachers identify best practices to meet the needs of all students. The score represents three measures: qualitative, achievement, and TNReady scores. These are intended to reflect student growth, not whether the student is proficient on the state assessment. 

Schools that earned a school-wide composite score of five include T. A. Dugger Jr. High School and West Side Elementary School. Elizabethton High School and Harold McCormick Elementary School earned a three, and East Side Elementary School earned a two.
