The Tennessee Department of Education announced this week that TCAP scores will be delayed this year. Tennessee state law requires that the student's TCAP scores in mathematics, reading/language arts, science, and social studies be a percentage of his/her final grade. Blount County Schools was granted a waiver of this requirement from Department of Education Commissioner Kevin Huffman.
As a result we will have a grade card distribution day on Wednesday, May 28, 2014 from 8:00 a.m.-12:00 noon. If parents are unable to pick up the grade card(s) they may send a self addressed stamped envelope and the card(s) will be mailed. The final grade on this report card does not reflect TCAP scores.
