Part II of the TNReady Assessment for grades 3 – 8 was to have been delivered to the schools no later than today, April 27, 2016. Wilson County has not received testing materials for grades 3-8. This afternoon, the Commissioner of Education stated that due to failure to meet numerous deadlines, the State Department of Education has terminated their contract with Measurement, Inc., effective immediately.

Wilson County has made the decision that we will not administer Part II of the TNReady Assessment for grades 3-8. This decision supports Dr. Wright’s previous message that Wilson County Schools would not cancel, reschedule, or postpone any end of the year activities scheduled for our students.

This decision does not affect middle school Algebra I nor does it affect those tests given in high school. TNReady assessments for high school and for middle school Algebra I will continue.
