The Cheatham County School District received top marks from the Tennessee Department of Education on student improvement in the 2022-23 school year.
Cheatham County School announced on Aug. 24 that the district has been named a Level 5 district.
The Level 5 designation is based on the 2022-2023 Tennessee Value-Added Assessment System (TVAAS) assessments. This is the highest level that a district can achieve for student academic growth.
TVAAS measures student growth year over year. Districts that earn a 5 are making more growth than expected. These numbers signal that more than a year’s worth of growth was made during the past school year.
“This is really exciting news for the Cheatham County School District. This is what we have been working toward as a district,” said Director of Schools Dr. Cathy Beck. “What we are doing every day in the classroom is paying off. Everyone who contributes to this success should be commended for their efforts. It takes all stakeholders working together, including administrators, faculty, staff, students, parents, the community and the Cheatham County School Board and Cheatham County Commission.”
