2015-2016 - Helping Tennessee Get Ready to Make the Most of TNReady

To improve academic achievement for students, Tennessee took an important step by raising expectations in the classroom. To be sure that students are learning more, Tennessee is entering a new era of measuring student learning.

This spring, students across the state are taking Tennessee Comprehensive Assessment Program (TCAP) exams in math and English language arts for the last time. Next year, Tennessee will shift to a new assessment that goes beyond multiple choice to measure learning in multiple ways and is designed to work with the standards used in the classroom. Tennessee educators have been eager to take this step so they have more and better information about how to help all students learn.

Tennessee will introduce the new English language arts and math assessments, called TNReady, during the 2015-16 school year, and it will be important to ensure that these new assessments provide teachers, parents, school and district leaders, and policymakers the information they need to support improved instruction and student learning. High-quality assessments should help students and their parents measure their progress on standards, offer accurate measurement of the skills that are needed for postsecondary education and the workforce, and guide the instruction of teachers.

SKYWARD STUDENT MANAGEMENT SYSTEM'S FAMILY ACCESS  
Student & Family Access is a web-based tool designed to enhance parent/guardian, student and school communication. Students can also use it to check their academic progress. Your use of the Family Access website will be voluntary.
 
All high school students and their parents have received their usernames/passwords, with BCMS soon to follow. Eventually Family Access will be available at all schools. Parents, if you do not have an email on file, please send your personal email address to your school's secretary so you will be notified as soon as Access is granted.
  • We will provide your log-in information via your child's school, along with directions how to access your child's grades and class information per the Skyward database.
  • Thanks for being involved and engaged in your child's educational progress and success! 

  

Community Eligibility Provision

 

Community Eligibility ProvisionThe Community Eligibility Provision (CEP) provides an alternative approach for offering school meals to local educational agencies (LEAs) and schools in low income areas, instead of collecting individual applications for free and reduced price meals.

The CEP allows schools that predominantly serve low-income children to offer free, nutritious school meals to all students through the National School Lunch and School Breakfast Programs. The CEP uses information from other programs, including the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP) and the Temporary Assistance Program for Needy Families (TANF) instead of traditional paper applications.
