Rutherford County Schools remains one of the top school districts in Tennessee, based on academic growth scores released by the Tennessee Department of Education.

RCS earned the highest possible composite score on the Tennessee Value-Added Assessment System — more commonly known as TVAAS ­— which measures student growth from year to year on a 1-5 scale. RCS received a composite score of 5 for its students’ growth during the 2021-2022 school year.

“Level 5 status means there is significant evidence that our students made more growth than expected,” Director of Schools Jimmy Sullivan said. “As a county, that means our students and teachers outperformed expectations. Although this has been customary for Rutherford County, we should never take for granted that our students are outperforming what statistical models projected.

Sullivan added: “This performance is dedicated to the hard work of our educators and support staff, and the collaboration we have with our parents and community.”

The school district’s composite score is made up of five categories. RCS received 5’s in system-wide literacy, system-wide literacy and numeracy, and system-wide social studies. It received a 4 in system-wide numeracy and a 2 in system-wide science. Lower science growth scores were common across the state, as the assessment and standards have become more rigorous.

At the school level, 19 Rutherford County Schools received a composite score of 5, the highest score possible.

The Department of Education is expected to release the list of schools who have earned “Reward School” status, in the next two weeks.

With so much in my heart I am here to express myself on how Priest Salami saved my marriage from divorce. Myself and my husband were having some misunderstanding and it was tearing our marriage apart to the extent my husband was seeking a divorce. So I have no option other than to go to the internet to seek a solution to my problem. It was there I came across Priest Salami details and about how he has helped a lot of people by restoring their relationship. I contacted Priest Salami and in less than 48 hours my husband cancelled the divorce papers. Now myself and my husband live together in peace and harmony all thanks to Priest Salami for saving my marriage from breaking up.
