Metro Nashville Public Schools has decided not to include TCAP scores in final grades for students in grades 3-8, according to a press release. The release said the district received a waiver from the Tennessee Department of Education earlier this month that allows this discretion.

We already notified our teachers, principals and parents that we would not use TCAP in calculating students final grades, said Jesse B. Register, director of schools. After consulting with some affected principals, we decided not to make another change this late in the year.
