NASHVILLE, Tenn. (WKRN) — Amid growing frustration over state testing and the potential for thousands of Tennessee children being held back in the third grade, the Tennessee Department of Education has released the averages for each district’s English Language Arts (ELA) TCAP tests.

Statewide, education officials said around 60% of third graders did not meet or exceed expectations on the ELA test for the Tennessee Comprehensive Assessment Program (TCAP) tests, but did not initially release district-specific information.

Some districts, including Metro Nashville Public Schools, Sumner County Schools, and Williamson County Schools opted to release estimations, but many districts kept quiet while under an embargo from the education department.

Here are how districts in Middle Tennessee fared.
