TN Ready FAQ

TN Ready FAQ for HHS Families

April 11, 2021

We are embarking on two weeks of TN READY End Of Course (EOC) testing beginning on Tuesday, April 13th.  HHS has created a FAQ for possible questions that have been regularly asked over the course of the last few days.  Please open up the Google Doc, Families of HHS FAQ for EOC Assessments, and read through to answer any lingering questions you may still have prior to testing. Please use this FAQ as a resource throughout testing as questions may be added.
If you still have questions, please feel free to reach out to Mrs. Shannon Blackburn, [email protected], at any time.
As always, thank you for your patience and flexibility as we navigate through yet another new procedure to ensure our goal of 80% or more is met for required state testing as well as providing the safest, secure environment for our students and staff. 
Thank you,
HHS Administration
