Superintendent Bryan Johnson is slated to give a deeper look at this year's TVAAS and TNReady scores at tonight's school board meeting.

On Wednesday, schools and community leaders celebrated significant student academic improvement and announced that the district was named a Level 5 district by the state this year.

Tennessee Value-Added Assessment Scores (TVAAS) measures student growth year over year by looking at student performance in five subject areas: literacy, numeracy, literacy and numeracy, science and social studies. Schools and districts earn a score of 1 to 5, with 5 being the highest.

"Yesterday's results showed the district's rate of improvement is significantly above the state. Today's information shows our children's absolute achievement is outperforming the state, and these results are a testament to the tireless efforts of our teachers, staff, and students with the support of our families," Johnson said in a statement Thursday.

The board will also be meeting for a policy committee work session at 4:30 p.m. ahead of it's regularly scheduled monthly meeting at 5:30 p.m.

The school board meets in the board room at the district's central office at 3074 Hickory Valley Road.
