JCS 3rd and 4th graders outperform peers across the state
 
 
Johnson City Schools 3rd and 4th grade students outperformed their peers across the state for the ELA portion of the spring 2024 Tennessee Comprehensive Academic Program (TCAP) assessment. In Tennessee, 3rd-grade students increased their average to 40.9 percent proficient, while 63 percent of Johnson City Schools 3rd graders were proficient. That was a drop from 64 percent during the 2022-2023 school year. Additionally, the 4th grade cohort had 68 percent of students perform proficiently. That outperformed the state average of 46.4 percent.
 
“These outcomes are a testament to the hard work of our students, teachers, support staff and families,” Johnson City Schools Superintendent Steve Barnett said. "By working closely with our teachers and support services, we will continue to ensure that all of our students have the opportunities and resources to become successful readers."
