Check the Performance of Your School and District

The Tennessee Department of Education released the district and school report card that makes it easier for families to see and understand information about their schools and district.

The report card includes results from the 2016-17 TNReady exams, so families can find out how their school is performing compared to other schools.

The report card was redesigned in 2016 to highlight figures that offer a more complete picture of how students and schools are performing. It also includes additional resources to help district and school leaders more easily download and share the data with their communities.

“We want all our families to have clear information on how their students and schools are doing,” Education Commissioner Candice McQueen said. “This report card is easy to use and has better information about whether our students are academically on track, both of which will help parents, educators, district leaders and advocates support our students’ success.”

The Department of Education has provided a report card annually since the early 1990s, offering an overview of state, district and school-level performance.

The report card has expanded over time to include a variety of data, including:

  • Enrollment statistics and demographic information
  • An academic snapshot about students’ achievement and growth on state assessments, graduation rates and ACT performance
  • Feedback about the performance of student groups
  • Additional context about school climates, which includes attendance and discipline statistics

The report card is a tool designed to equip districts and communities with the data to make informed decisions to support their students and educators. Additionally, the Department of Education provides support to districts through regional field offices that offer resources and analysis to help districts and schools with data-driven interventions.

Data from previous years’ report cards are available by selecting the appropriate year from the Year menu on the 2016-17 Report Card. State report cards from 2012-13 and earlier can be found in the Report Card Archives.
