Metro Schools earns good grades for growth on State Report Card
Metro Nashville Public Schools is celebrating our students’ progress, as reflected in the State Report Card. Value added grades, in particular, are cause for celebration because they measure the most important attribute: growth.
“Our reforms are working and our teaching force is strong. The A and B’s we earned in value added are the result of that powerful combination,” said Jesse B. Register, director of schools. “The 6,000 educators in Metro Schools are due all the credit for this. This report card is reflective of their dedication to students.”
The district expects continued growth.
“We will keep pushing with the successful programs that have brought us this far and will not be satisfied until all students are achieving at high levels. With trend lines still heading up and our strategic plan Education 2018: Excellence for Every Student in place to become to highest performing urban district in the country, we will get there.”
