2021-22 TCAP Results Show Promising Growth for Millington Municipal Schools Students

More Students Meeting or Exceeding the State’s Expectations in Nearly Every Tested Subject & Grade Level


(Millington, TN) – The Tennessee Department of Education (TDOE) released statewide TCAP performance for grades 3-12. The results showed promising growth for students in Millington Municipal Schools, as the percentage of students who are On Track, meaning they met or exceeded the state’s expectations, increased in nearly every tested subject and grade level compared to 2020-21. Additionally, the percentage of students rated as being below expectations decreased in nearly every tested subject and grade level. For both categories, there were double-digit improvements for many subjects and grades.


“We are moving in the right direction as a school district, and that makes me proud,” said Superintendent Bo Griffin. “Our teachers, staff, students, and families have been through a lot these past couple of years, so it’s rewarding to see everyone’s hard work pay off. We know we have a lot more work to do, but it’s important for us to recognize the growth. I’m looking forward to building on this momentum in the coming school year.”


Students in grades 3-12 completed the TCAP and End of Course (EOC) assessments in the spring. Grades 3-5 were tested in English/Language Arts (ELA), Math, and Science. Grades 6-8 were tested in the same subjects, as well as Social Studies. EOC tests were given in English I and II, Algebra I and II, Geometry, and Biology. 


“In our first full year of in-person learning since the pandemic, we were very intentional about the types of strategies needed to help our students improve,” Superintendent Griffin said. “We added some critical academic and support positions to our schools to help address individual student needs, and I think the growth we’ve seen is evidence that it’s working.”

 

A snapshot of district level ELA and Math scores is included here, along with a snapshot for each grade band. 


Key strategies that contributed to student progress in 2021-22 include:

  • Grade reconfiguration (Pre-K-3, 4-6, 7-12) with aligned school leadership to better support student and teacher needs and strengthen efforts around early literacy, content knowledge, and post-secondary preparation
  • Intentional efforts to keep class sizes low, particularly in grades K-8, so teachers could address individual student needs more effectively
  • Addition of a social worker in every school building to support social-emotional learning, mental health, and wraparound services 
  • Expansion of ELA/Math supports with the hiring of additional instructional coaches and education assistants
  • Increased use of instructional software to better track and monitor individual student performance and provide parents with frequent updates about their child’s development 

Looking ahead to the 2022-23 school year, the district will continue working to improve student achievement with a strong focus on hiring and rewarding highly effective staff.
