The Tennessee Department of Education (TDOE) has released district-level results from the 2021-2022 Tennessee Comprehensive Assessment Program (TCAP). These results provide data on student performance in English language arts (ELA), math, science, and social studies. Elizabethton City Schools’ (ECS) strong focus on academic growth has proven to be essential. Most of the results exhibit data that outperforms that of pre-pandemic years as well as state averages.
The TDOE measures achievement results in four expectation categories: Below, Approaching, Met, and Exceeds. In ELA, 44% of ECS students either met or exceeded expectations as compared to the state average of 36%. Math demonstrated that 41% met or exceeded expectations as compared to the state at 31%. ECS outperformed the state average in both science (48% ECS vs. 40% State) and social studies (58% ECS vs. 42%) as well.
Although, the previously presented data is just a snapshot of ECS’ district performance, ECS demonstrated significant achievement gains in all subjects in multiple grade levels as well as various subgroups. ECS, Director of Schools, Richard VanHuss stated “I can’t begin to relay how proud I am of all our teachers and staff members across the district that worked so hard to close learning gaps created by the pandemic. They have sacrificed so much to ensure our students’ success! Our students and their families have also worked extremely hard, and the results speak for themselves. There is always room to improve, but I am confident that the Cyclone Family is up to the challenge. The staff and programs we have in place put us in position for another year of significant growth.”
