Focus Five Performance Targets

In addition to the Key Performance Indicators (KPIs) and related targets that we have defined, the district will pursue five overarching performance targets to measure our success at the end of the Future Ready 2023! five-year time frame.

At least half of all third grade students will be on-track or mastered as measured by the TNReady English Language Arts assessment.

In 2017, the district was at 33.3% proficiency for third grade reading. Early literacy is critical to ensuring that students have the academic foundation to put them on a trajectory for success through high school and beyond.

We will double the percent of students on track in Algebra I across all grades.

In 2017, only 18.7 percent of district students were on track for college and career readiness as measured by state EOC assessments in Algebra I. Algebraic problem solving is growing in importance across all career sectors, as STEM becomes an essential part of the workplace. Our students need these skills to compete in the 21st century economy.

75% of graduates will complete at least one advanced course or industry certification exam.

The average ACT composite for the class of 2017 was 19.9. ACT is an important indicator for post-secondary readiness, as well as HOPE scholarship opportunities. We believe that, on average, our graduates should be able to demonstrate their preparation for post-secondary based on composite ACT scores.
