  • The student was previously retained in any of the grades K-3.
  • The student is retested in accordance with Department guidelines before the beginning of the next school year and scores proficient in ELA.
  • The student attends a learning loss bridge camp before the beginning of the upcoming school year, maintains a 90% attendance rate at the camp, and the student’s performance on the post-test administered to the student at the end of the learning loss bridge camp, demonstrates adequate growth.  Or
  • The student receives high-dosage, low-ratio tutoring for the entirety of the upcoming school year from a Tennessee accelerating literacy and learning corps (TALLC) tutor. High dosage, low-ratio tutoring means a minimum of two 30 minute sessions per week with a 1:3 teacher to student ratio. TALLC tutoring may be provided through the following options:
    • A tutor recruited and trained through the TN ALL Corps grant program.
    • A district recruited tutor who has completed the department’s TN ALL Corps training.

An LEA shall not retain a student with a disability or a suspected disability that impacts their ability to read.

Retention and promotion decisions shall be made on a case-by-case basis and in consultation with the student’s IEP and/or 504 team to determine whether the student’s performance of the ELA TCAP was due to the student's disability.

Appeals to the Department:

  • The parent or legal guardian of a student who is identified for retention in third grade based on the student’s achieving a performance rating of approaching  on the ELA portion of the TCAP may appeal within 14 days to the Department.

    • Ground 1:
      • The student demonstrated growth above the national norm as demonstrated in the student’s composite score from Aimsweb and
      • The student demonstrated growth in standards mastery based on student’s scores on a state-approved standards-based benchmark assessment administered by the student's school: or
