  • The state of Tennessee requires that all students take part in state-mandated tests such as EOC and TCAP. By state statute, there is specific language that does not allow students to opt-out of state testing and by local board policy, the tests are 15% of the final grade. Please contact your child's principal for additional information, questions, or concerns about state testing.
