Some East Tennessee schools received some encouraging news Wednesday.

Copper Ridge Elementary celebrated their straight-A status.

The Tennessee State Report Card includes state, district and school level information on academic achievement, demographics and other data.

Knox County earned straight A's for achievement for the first time ever, and mostly A's for the value of education. Knox County improved from a "C" to a "B" in reading and science and a "B" to an "A" in math. It held steady with an "A" in social studies.

"It's exciting, and it really speaks to the hard work that our teachers are doing, that our kids are doing, and the wonderful support of our families and our community," said Superintendent Dr. Jim McIntyre

This year's report card calculated the impact of the district and the schools in it. It is called the Tennessee Value-Added Assessment System, or TVAAS. Anderson, Hamblen, Blount, Knox, and Sevier all scored a five out of five. But Union County scored a one.
