Making the grade — Schools receive letter grades for transparency about performance

Just as teachers have expectations for their students, the state has expectations for schools in Tennessee. To provide a snapshot of how each of Bledsoe County’s schools are doing in meeting the state’s expectations for learning they are graded. These grades include student achievement and academic growth measures for all schools as well as a measure of college and career readiness for high schools.

Bledsoe County’s three elementary schools, middle school, and high school scored from mid to upper range. Pikeville Elementary, Mary V. Wheeler Elementary and the high school all received a B letter grade while Rigsby Elementary and the middle school each received a C letter grade. Pikeville Elementary scored a 3.9, Mary V. Wheeler Elementary scored a 4.4, and BCHS scored a 3.8,  on a grade scale of 3.5 to 4.4. BCMS scored a 2.6 and Cecil B. Rigsby scored a 2.5 on a grade scale of 2.5-3.4.
