TCAP Information and Resources

This past spring, your student took the Tennessee Comprehensive Assessment Program (TCAP) test, so that we can better understand your student’s progress toward grade level learning expectations. A printed copy of your student’s state score report(s) will be sent home within the first two weeks of school. We know there is no one more important in a student’s education than parents and families, and one way we can better serve you is to ensure that you are equipped with complete information about your student’s academic performance in the four core subjects: math, ELA, science, and social studies.

COVID and School Attendance

COVID continues to be a concern in our community and schools.  The following protocols are in place for the 2022-2023 school year to address COVID and school attendance:

A student that is at school and is symptomatic with a fever will be sent home and given 2 days of excused absences by the school nurse.  If the child is not better after the two days, he/she will be required to be tested for COVID.  This can be done in the doctor’s office, by the school nurse, or a home test.  If the test is completed by a doctor, the school nurse MUST have verification from the doctor that the student tested positive.  This can be in the form of a doctor’s excuse stating that the child has tested positive.  If the test is completed at home, a picture of the positive test MUST be sent to the school nurse.  If the test is positive, the student’s absence will be coded as D for distance learning (including the two days mentioned above).   The student will only have five (5) days of distance learning.  Please note that if the child is sick over the weekend, those days are included in the five days.  If the test is negative, the student must return to school.  If the child does not return to school, the absences will be counted as unexcused.  Any further missed days after the two-day period without a doctor’s excuse or positive test results will be counted as unexcused absences. 

If a child is at home and becomes symptomatic and does not attend school, the parent/guardian may call the school stating such.  However, the parent/guardian must provide proof that their child has tested positive for COVID (please see the paragraph above.)  Proof of the positive test results will result in five (5) days of absences being coded as D for distance learning.

Bullying Prevention for Parents

Middle school. It’s the transition from childhood to adolescence—when children become more independent and want to make choices for themselves. They are also in a developmental period when friends and social circles are increasingly important. And it’s the time when children can experience bullying most. If you have questions about bullying and what to do about it, check out this resource for tips and information on it.

Homebound Information for 2022-23 School Year

The purpose of Homebound Instruction is to provide educational services outside of the regular classroom to students with temporary illness or injuries to help students maintain their academic performance during recovery.   The Johnson County School System has updated its homebound services/policies and request packet. We will no longer accept the previous homebound forms.  For any questions, please contact Edna Miller, Homebound Supervisor, at emiller@jocoed.net.
