Rutherford County Director of Schools Don Odom

Rutherford County school students are scheduled to begin taking the pen and paper version of the TnReady Assessment this week. The systems over 19-thousand students in grades three through eight and over 11-thousand high school students will begin taking tests this week. Each individual school will have discretion on when they start testing.

The county, which received the test packets last week, had to scramble to affix labels for each of the 70-thousand plus tests. Some school systems have had to work in 24-hour shifts to get the job done.

During last week's school board meeting, board member Coy Young asked if the county could opt out of the state testing. Director of Schools Don Odom said that wasn't possible as Governor Haslam and the state Department of Education have decided the tests will still be used to evaluate schools and school districts. This despite the fact students' scores on the test will not be a part of their end of the year grades.
