NEW INFORMATION: Governor Defends TCAP Score Delay

  Email   Print

NASHVILLE - We've been continuing to follow the story about TCAP results being delayed. Now, Governor Haslam is weighing in. On Wednesday, the governor said the state Department of Education was being cautious when they decided to delay the release of the scores to school districts. Schools across the state were notified about the delay. Systems received the scores last Friday, but for some, it was after the school year. Murfreesboro City Schools were among the many systems across the state that were granted a waiver to send home report cards without the scores. Rutherford County Schools asked for that same waiver, but since the scores were received in time, they will go home with report cards today (Thursday). The governor, speaking at the State Capitol with reporters Wednesday, said they wanted to make sure the information sent out was correct and erred on the side of caution.
