Clinton City Schools Recognized by Governor Haslam

Director of Schools, Dr. Vicki Violette was informed Tuesday, July 5, that Clinton City Schools was one of 18 school systems across Tennessee to have made over a 20% improvement in combined Math and Reading scores on the 2011 TCAP test for grades 3-8.

The exceptional progress made by these 18 schools was noted by Governor Bill Haslam on Thursday at a Press Conference held at Northfield Elementary School in Murfreesboro.  After attending the press conference, Dr. Violette said, "We are thrilled that the combined growth in math and reading for Clinton City Schools was 25.3%! This is not only evident of hard work by our students and teachers, but also shows the support of our parents, School Board, our City Council, and our community.  This recognition is a validation that our teachers, principals, and other staff members are working hard to meet the challenges for student achievement.  This news is a wonderful way to celebrate the beginning of a new school year!"

Preliminary results from the Tennessee Comprehensive Assessment Program showed that the state average for math scores in grades 3-8 improved by seven percent, while reading scores improved 3.7 percent, while the Clinton Schools had a gain of approximately 10% in reading and 15.3% in math.
