3rd Grade Retention Resources

The state of Tennessee has had a student promotion and retention law in place since 2011. During the 2021 Special Session, the Tennessee legislature updated that law to ensure that all students have the support to read and perform on grade level no later than the 2022-23 school year. To support districts, schools, and families, the department has developed several resources, including:
