    of 100 percent of students proficient in math and
    reading/language arts by 2014. Likewise, each
    Tennessee school has its own track for improvement

    passed and how far it had to go in each category to
    reach 100 percent proficiency.

         Kirby Middle AYP Status
    Kirby Middle School did meet AYP status. Currently,
    our school is recognized as a School in Good Standing.
    This means that we made enough adequate progress in
    consecutive years to be considered a school in good
    academic standing. Our goal is to maintain this status
    by scoring high enough this year on the TCAP exam in
    mathematics and language arts and the TCAP Writing
    Assessments to remain in good standing. This will take
    more effort on all stakeholders according to our
    progress this previous year.
Academic Philosophy
         We desire for each and every student
 to find academic success and a comfort zone
 within the school. It is our goal to
 implement a diverse approach to
 instructional delivery in a real effort to reach
 every child in a manner that he/she learns
 best. We want our students to develop a
 lifelong love of learning and aspire to accept
 rigorous academic challenges for the rest of
 their lives.
  Differentiated Instructional
We will employ differentiated instructional
strategies. We understand that projects and
hands-on activities are important components.
In addition, we will use multiple sources for
instruction including textbooks, outside
readings, technology, the community,
manipulatives, experimentation, and simulations.

    aligned with curriculum pacing and TCAP objectives.
   We will utilize the rule of 85/80/80. Which means we
    will not move on until 85% of our students can reflect
    80% mastery of 8o% of the addressed SPI’s. We will
