State Report Card
The department wants parents and community members to have easy-to-understand information about Tennessee schools. Over the course of a year, parents, educators, and community organizations provided feedback that helped the department develop a new Report Card with a dashboard of key information about every school and district in the state.
As a result of COVID-19 and subsequent school closures, very few tests were completed across the state during the 2019-20 school year. Any assessment data collected prior to closures has been returned to each school district to support their instructional planning. However, due to the extraordinary circumstances from the previous school year, and due to the United States Department of Education and the Tennessee General Assembly waiving the federal and state assessment and accountability requirements for the data from the 2019-20 school year, this data will not be made publicly available.
Additional data will also be excluded from this year’s Report Card for similar reasons, including rankings or letter grades. Finance data, NAEP scores, enrollment information, and basic school and district information are still available to view on the 2020 Report Card. For additional information on what will be included this year, refer to our Data to be Reported one pager.
In addition to the data displayed within the Report Card, more in-depth information is publicly available on the department’s Data Downloads webpage.
Additional information about the new State Report Card is available in the Resources box. The department will continue to improve this resource in future years based on input from families and users. .
