In guidance received from the Tennessee Department of Education in August, 2015, districts were notified that we had the option to exclude a student’s state assessment scores from final grades if the district doesn’t receive the scores at least five instructional days before the end of the school year (or semester for high schools on block schedule in the fall). The approximate earliest dates for release of scores for 2015-16 communicated by the TDOE are the week of February 3 for fall high school block classes and the week of June 6 for spring high school block classes and traditional year-long schedules. Both of these fall outside of Johnson City’s end dates for both semesters.
In addition, students taking the TNReady Math and ELA assessments in Tennessee this year are asked to complete a survey at the end of each assessment. Copies of these surveys are found here:

Random Acts of Kindness –
We want to thank you all for your support and participation with the random acts of kindness and for helping us to grow our chain of kindness. Thanks to all the students who are trying to look for ways to be kind to each other and encouraging and supporting each other. We will be continuing to grow our chain through the end of the month, so continue to be on the lookout for even the smallest acts of kindness. Also if any of you need more strips please let your counselor know and we will work to get those to you. Right now Team Franklin in the Red building is consistently adding the most links to the chain each week and Team Patriot in the Blue Building is adding more links to the chain! Go teams Franklin and Patriot! Remember extra team time and points at patriot games are at stake! Not to mention the positive reinforcement students are getting from this activity!
Let’s see how long our chain will grow as we continue through the end of February!!!
