School Designation Information

Each year the Tennessee Department of Education examines schools’ performance across several different indicators to provide an overall look at how schools are serving the needs of all students. The Department of Education included the following indicators in its analysis of school accountability:

  • Student achievement

  • Student growth

  • English Learner Proficiency Exam (ELPA)

  • Chronic absenteeism


JCMS is identified for Designation: Targeted Support and Improvement (TSI) as required by ESSA and the U.S. Department of Education during the 2023-24 school year. Our school is working hard with the district and the Tennessee Department of Education to increase student performance by adopting high-quality instructional materials and supporting teachers with training in identified areas of need. We encourage you to help by participating in the development and implementation of our school improvement plan. We also encourage everyone to attend parent nights and support their child’s education with consistent attendance.
