  • Achieving Starts with Believing
    Every Child a Graduate – Every Graduate Prepared for Life

     
    Accountability is the guiding principle that defines how we make commitments to one another, how we measure and report our progress, how we interact when things go wrong, and how much ownership we take to get things done.
     
    For accountability to work, every effort toward improvement must be efficient and effective.  It reflects the positive and negative ramifications of attendance, curriculum, instruction, school climate, school culture, discipline, professional development, assessment, guidance, child nutrition, and health services.
     
    Accountability provides the bridge connecting our elementary, middle, and high schools to ensure every child is a graduate and every graduate is prepared for life.

  • New Holt High School Site Approved:

    Meeting in regular session on Monday, December 14, 2015, the Tuscaloosa County Board of Education accepted the recommendation of Dr. Walter Davie, Interim Superintendent, for the site selection of the new Holt High School. Described as site ‘N’ throughout the research and selection process, the approved area is a 62.74 acre of land located east of Crescent Ridge Road, situated roughly between Keene Drive as the approximate South border and extending slightly beyond Elm Drive to the North. The proximity access between Holt Elementary, Davis-Emerson Middle, and the new Holt High School will have advantages for programmatic elements for this high school cluster and also will assist with transportation.

    Dr. Davie stated that, “It is exciting to be able to recommend to the Board the site for the new Holt High School. Much discussion, planning, and research has taken place and I now believe we do have the best recommendation to put forth before the Board of Education.”

    Now that the site has been approved, the site acquisition process will move forward. Through Ward Scott Architects, the Board has employed Matt Tompkins with the Rosen Harwood law firm to work with land owners in the acquisition stage. There are nineteen parcels of land with five occupied dwellings within the approximate 63 acre area. Plans are for the acquisition of all properties to be completed by late spring. It is hoped that the site preparation aspect of the construction work can begin by mid-summer 2016.
