Tunica County School District banks on growth to improve rating
Teachers in the Tunica County School District (TCSD) say student growth is evident and key in advancing the district’s academic achievement rating, but data from the district shows most students are still behind in English Language Arts (ELA) and many in Math.
“The thing that we’re looking for basically is not passing or failing,” said Tiffany Foxx, a fifth grade math teacher at Robinsonville Elementary School. “It’s showing growth in our proficiency.”
Proficiency is a measure of student performance, which is progressively categorized into minimal, basic, proficient, or advanced, according to scores from the Mississippi Curriculum Test, Second Edition (MCT2). All 3rd through 8th grade students in the state will take the MCT2 May 13-15.
