Level 5 Reward School

Level 5 Reward School
Posted on 08/15/2019
Thrasher is a TN State Reward School Again!You know Signal Mountain schools excel. Thrasher is once again named a Tennessee State Reward School. Using a variety of metrics, Thrasher had to score a 3.1 or higher out of 4.0 possible points to be eligible for Tennessee's reward status. 

Thrasher scored a 3.8 out of 4.

Here's what went into the score:
  • Achievement - Thrasher exceeded the Annual Measurable Objective (AMO) in literacy and in math. In math, we exceeded our double AMO, which is big stuff. (Science and Social Studies scores did not factor this year.)
  • Growth - Thrasher is a top-performing school, but we still showed exceptionally strong growth. A Level 3 is "expected growth". Thrasher's growth is a Level 5, which is two statistical standard deviations above the expectation.
  • Attendance - This factors in to our accountability. Some children are chronically absent (more than 10% of a school year). We are required to show growth in the number of children who attend school with fidelity. And, you helped us with this tremendously this year. Thank you!
  • Subgroups - Not only are we required to achieve and grow as a school, we must show that groups of children are also responding positively to instruction at Thrasher. We excelled in subgroups as well.

The only way Thrasher can continue to be a top-drawer school is to keep a tight relationship between our excellent parents and excellent teachers!
