A Letter to Our Parents About TNReady Testing

Dear Parents,

As you may know, students in Bartlett City Schools and across Tennessee will participate in the upcoming TNReady assessment in April. BCS students in 2nd grade, grades 3 – 8 and those enrolled in high school End of Course subjects will test during the upcoming testing window, which will run from April 18 – May 3, 2017. Students will be assessed using paper booklets and answer documents this year in lieu of testing on computers.

Over the past several years, our state has adopted more rigorous academic standards, and our teachers have been using these standards in their daily instruction. The TNReady assessment has been developed to go hand in hand with the new standards and will provide better information regarding your child’s strengths and weaknesses in language arts, math, science, and social studies.

Beginning this year, TNReady testing has been broken into shorter subparts to better fit the classroom schedules and to increase time for regular instruction and school activities.

You play a very important role in students’ academic success. Please encourage students to…

- Get a good night’s rest.
- Eat a healthy breakfast.
- Arrive at school on time.

Thank you for your continued involvement. Together we can make a difference.
Mrs. Watson, Mr. Baade, Mrs. Royston

Welcome to a great new year and new system!

A Hundred Years From Now

"A hundred years from now, it will not even matter what my bank account was,
the sort of house I lived in, or even the kind of car I drove...
but the world may be different  because I was important
in the life of a CHILD!"

Absences Add Up

Your child’s daily, on-time attendance is critical to their success in school. And while some challenges to your child’s school attendance are unavoidable, it’s important to understand the impact of each absence.

A student is considered chronically absent if they miss only two days of school per month (18 days in a year), whether the absences are excused or unexcused. This is true for children as early as elementary school, when they are at a higher risk of falling behind in reading. Even one year of chronic absence can cause a child to fall behind academically and decrease a child’s chances of graduating from high school, which can have long-term consequences on their financial independence, physical well-being and mental health.

The good news? Attending school every day increases a child’s chances of success in school and in life.
