We were informed this morning by TDOE that we will not be receiving all 3-8 and EOC TNReady scores until June 10. We are required to count TNReady scores if they are returned within 5 business days of the last day of school. Since the state did not meet this deadline, we are not required to count the test scores in the overall student average. We recognize the need to finalize student grades. Therefore, we will not count spring TNReady scores. This will allow teachers to finalize grades at this time. Report cards will be finalized by June 3.
Please view the video below and provide feedback about the direction GCSSD plans to go with utilizing funding from ESSER 3.0. Feedback survey is open until June 22, 2021. Link to video: https://youtu.be/B632UjAeSOc Link to feedback survey: https://forms.gle/YT2Kb4wrYVRgjvPm6
GCSSD will receive TNReady scores on May 28, 2021. Your students TNReady score is added as a part of their Q4 grade.

Grades will then be finalized and report cards will be posted via PowerSchool Parent Portal on June 7, 2021.
