Recently, Robertson County Schools released data regarding Tennessee Comprehensive Assessment Program (TCAP) and End of Course (EOC) tests. TCAP measures school and individual student progress based on core content and yearly growth in reading/language arts, math, science, and social studies.

Eight schools in Robertson County reached their annual measurable objectives (AMO) for individual achievement for the 2012-2013 school year.

The eight schools are:

• Cheatham Park Elementary

• Jo Byrns Elementary

• Coopertown Elementary

• Greenbrier Elementary

• Westside Elementary

• Coopertown Middle

• Greenbrier Middle

Nine schools showed growth in student achievement. These schools are:

Math Science

E. Robertson-4th grade 12.2 percent gain

Krisle - 4th grade 14.4 percent gain

Watauga - 3rd grade 11.4 percent gain

Springfield Middle - 8th grade 32 percent gain

Percentages for high schools showing gain in End of Course testing are as follows:

Springfield High School 13.4 percent gain Algebra I

Greenbrier High School 10.4 percent gain Algebra II

Jo Byrns High School 14.1 percent gain Biology I

East Robertson High 12.4 percent gain English 2

WH Heritage High 13.8 percent gain English 3

“Robertson County Schools are also listed as one of the few districts in the state with only one subgroup in need of improvement, which was English Language Learners (ELL),” Communications Coordinator Jim Bellis wrote in a press release. “We congratulate these schools, administrators, teachers, and students for their achievements, and will continue to strive for continued growth towards our goal of academic success for each student.”
