  • New Superintendent Announced: 12/14/2015

    The Tuscaloosa County Board of Education unanimously selected Deputy Superintendent Walter Davie as the new full-time superintendent of the Tuscaloosa County School System at its Monday board meeting.

    "Dr. Davie has worked in the system for many years and he is deeply concerned about our children," said Gary Mims, board president. "I can't think of a better candidate."

    Davie has worked in education for more than 20 years, mostly with the Tuscaloosa County School System. He began his career as a teacher at Crestmont Elementary in 1990. He served as the principal of Davis-Emerson Middle School from 2006 until his appointment as deputy superintendent in 2011, principal of Cottondale Elementary School from 2000-05 and assistant principal of Matthews Elementary School from 1995-97. He also worked for Tuscaloosa City Schools as director of federal programs from 1997-99.

  • 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.

  • Tuscaloosa County Schools Awarded Pre-K Grants

    The beginning of a new school year is always an exciting time and this year the level of excitement is even higher for seven of our schools.  In May 2015, Governor Bentley announced over 200 new grants that will provide Alabama four-year-olds with access to high quality, pre-kindergarten. 

    The Tuscaloosa County School System was awarded seven First Class Pre-K PLUS grants.  Taylorville Primary School received grants for two Pre-K classes while the following schools each received a grant for one Pre-K class: Brookwood Elementary School, Lake View Elementary School, Myrtlewood Elementary School, Vance Elementary School and Walker Elementary School.  In addition to the First Class PLUS classroom grants, Buhl Elementary School and Taylorville Primary School received First Class Intervention grants. 

    The Alabama Office of School Readiness (OSR) has developed early learning standards to promote school readiness for four-year-olds. The children attending TCSS Pre-K classes will be provided with opportunities for exploration, sociability, creativity, decision making and responsibility. These experiences will lead to students that are ready to learn when entering kindergarten.
