Star Staff Reports
The model is built on multiple indicators that make districts and schools successful, including graduation rates; state test scores and student growth data; English learner performance; low chronic absenteeism and out-of-school suspensions; and how ready students are when they graduate, including through having access to early postsecondary opportunities, industry certifications, military readiness and ACT/SAT composites that qualify for the Tennessee HOPE scholarship.
A statement was released by Millington Municipal Schools last week moments after the results were released.
“Millington Municipal Schools acknowledges its Advancing achievement status. We will celebrate our work in Literacy along with our improvements in Chronic Absenteeism. Moving forward, all data available will be utilized to focus on our specific area of need at our individual schools.”
