The State of Alabama introduced the Alabama State Report Card so students, parents, taxpayers and others could easily understand how their schools are performing, just as report cards help parents understand how their kids are doing. The goal of the report card is to provide a starting point and to offer easy-to-understand and concise information showing how a school is doing.
We encourage parents and others to explore the new Alabama State Report Card, which provides multi-year, detailed information about our schools and allows you to compare our school system to others throughout the state using a wide range of measures. This information can be found on the Alabama State Department of Education website.
Whether a school/school system receives a higher or lower letter grade, the release of the Alabama State Report Card represents an opportunity for schools, parents and community members to work together to help every school in the state succeed.
The letter grade is a snapshot and a conversation starter for communities. It is not about pointing fingers. It is intended to be a catalyst for discussion and improvement. Together, we will continue to identify ways we can provide our students with the best educational experiences possible.
