The first Report Card illustrating the rigorous academic changes Sevier County and the rest of Tennessee have implemented in 2011 was released Nov. 1.
In the Academic Achievement Grades portion of the 2012 Report Card, the Sevier County School System received average (C) status in grades three through eight in reading and language arts and above average (B) status in mathematics. The district received above average (B) status in social studies and science in grades three through eight.

TVAAS scores for the school system improved around the state growth standard in math and social studies and met the growth standard in language arts. TVAAS scores in science remain an area of challenge. Writing performance in grades nine through twelve received an exemplary (A) score.
