  • Dear Families,

     As you may be aware, this week marked the beginning of the TNReady testing program. TNReady is the new state assessment designed to measure true student understanding and problem-solving abilities under Tennessee’s rigorous academic standards.  These tests were expected to be administered entirely online.

    On Monday, many schools across the state experienced significant technical challenges with the MIST platform, the online tool used by the Tennessee Department of Education (TNDOE) to administer the TNReady tests.  As a result, some schools had to discontinue testing.

    In the best interests of students and to protect instructional time, the TNDOE has determined that they cannot continue with the TNReady online testing platform in its current state. Therefore, for the remainder of the 2015-16 school year, TNReady assessments will be administered via paper and pencil.

    As a result of this statewide shift to paper and pencil assessments, the TNDOE will delay and extend the Part I testing window.  Paper tests will be printed and shipped shortly, and a revised testing window will be communicated by the end of the week.  We will be sharing this information with you as it becomes available. 

    The state of Tennessee, as well as our school district, had been diligently preparing for this new online assessment over the past few years, so it is understandably frustrating to encounter these challenges.  I would ask for your patience, as the TNDOE works to adjust the testing timeline and ship paper tests to our school.

    More information will be forthcoming in the next few days.  In the meantime, our teachers will continue to focus on high quality instruction, and we will all continue to make decisions that are in the best interests of our students at Halls High School.

    Thank you for your understanding and support.

     Sincerely,

     

    Mark Duff

    Principal
