Congress has until tomorrow (Friday) to extend funding to the Highway Trust Fund in order to keep the federal fund afloat at least through the end of the year. If not, the government will not be able to fully fund road projects it promised Tennessee it would—including 2 here in Cumberland County. State Transportation Commissioner John C Schorer says the Peavine Road project and the eastbound truck climbing lane at mile marker 339 are among 13 projects statewide that have been “shifted” until the funds are made available. The Highway Trust Fund is funded by an 18 cent-per-gallon gas tax. It then provides federal funding to states across the country to supplement the cost of road projects and bridge maintenance.
The state released results from the 2014 TCAP tests on Wednesday. Statewide, reading in grades 3 through 8 dropped slightly, and is an area of continued need for improvement. Results of the 2013-14 TCAP released earlier this month show students in those grade levels continue to lag behind in reading. Here in Cumberland County, elementary students showed improvement in math and science, were slightly down in reading and flat in social studies. At the high school level, students in Cumberland County did very well on end of course exams, showing growth in all areas except a very slight decline in algebra 1.
