FSSD IMPROVEMENT PLAN
FSSD District Accountability Plan
At the start of the 2015-16 school year, the Tennessee Department of Education laid out goals for Tennessee’s students and what it will take to reach them. The four big goals for our students include:
- Tennessee will rank in the top half of states on the National Assessment of Educational Progress (NAEP) by 2019.
- Seventy-five percent of Tennessee third graders will be proficient in reading by 2025.
- The average ACT composite score in Tennessee will be a 21 by 2020.
- The majority of high school graduates from the class of 2020 will earn a postsecondary certificate, diploma or degree.
To reach our goals as a state, the department identified several key areas of focus including:
- Early Foundations & Literacy: all students must receive adequate support toward reaching critical literacy milestones beginning in early grades
- High School & Bridge to Postsecondary: all students must be prepared to effectively transition into postsecondary education or career
- All Means All: all students must be provided access to a multi-tiered system of support to meet their individual needs
- Educator Support: all teachers must receive adequate preparation and continued support necessary to support all students in reaching milestones
