Tennessee state lawmakers passed a bill yesterday waiving several requirements for all schools in response to the coronavirus pandemic and the tornadoes in Middle Tennessee.

The bill includes the following changes to requirements:

  • Allow schools to end their school year without 180 days of instruction.
  • Suspend the requirement for the 2019-20 spring administration of the TNReady and end-of-course assessments. Schools and districts would be allowed to continue with testing if they choose, but none would be required.
  • Teacher evaluations, student final grades and school district assessments would be unaffected by any testing, unless including a score leads to a higher grade.
