The Tennessee Department of Education announced earlier this month that Moore County High School has been designated as a Reward School. Schools receive recognition for their success under the state’s accountability system.
According to the TDoE, schools are designated as Reward for performance for overall student achievement. This designation is determined annually by a one-year success rate. A success rate is calculated by adding together the total number of proficient or advanced students in each subject and dividing by the total number of test takers for each subject.
Schools are designated as Reward for progress for having high student growth. This designation is determined by a one-year TVAAS school composite.
Moore County was recognized as a Reward School based on progress, meaning there have been significant gains at the school from one year to the next.
“We’d like to be in the top five percent in achievement; that’s our goal,” Director of Schools Chad Moorehead told board of education members Monday night. “Our goal is to always be a little higher in achievement.”
