The Clarksville-Montgomery County School SystemMontgomery County, TN – Clarksville-Montgomery County School System earned bragging rights as the Tennessee Department of Education announced student performance on the 2012 Tennessee Comprehensive Assessment Program.

CMCSS has improved in achievement proficiency in all subject areas and grades, with the exception of U.S. History, which remains at an exceptionally high 97 percent proficient.

In grades 3-8 and in high schools, the greatest achievement increase is in science and math. “This report shows that CMCSS clearly is dedicated to student achievement in science and math,” said Dr. B.J. Worthington, incoming Director of Schools. “This is a strong indication of the hard work of our teachers and school administrators and it builds momentum as we see the results of our focus,” he added.

“This is significant improvement and we believe this is attributable to the following: focused work and training in these areas for teachers; individualizing teaching for students; and after school programs,” added Dr. Sean Impeartrice, incoming Chief Academic Officer.

The Tennessee Department of Education announced that student performance on the 2012 Tennessee Comprehensive Assessment Program improved significantly in school districts across the state.

Nearly all of the state’s 136 districts saw proficiently levels increase, and two-thirds improved in every subject of the 3-8 TCAP Achievement tests.

The district-by-district results follow unprecedented gains on the statewide level, where student scores saw the largest growth in TCAP history as Tennessee continued to implement its First to the Top Education reforms.

District proficiency levels reveal major improvements in math skills. More than 50 districts saw double-digit growthover last year in Algebra I, with some reporting gains greater than 30 percentage points. Additionally, 23 districts saw double-digit growth in grades 3-8 math.

District-by-district TCAP results can be accessed on the education department website, where they are posted in sortable spreadsheets. Statewide TCAP results, released last month, are also on the site.
