    Education Report Card

    As required by the Alabama Act 2012-402 and the federal Every Student Succeeds Act (ESSA) of 2015, the Alabama State Department of Education released the new Alabama Unified Report Card for the state, school systems, and schools.  The grade received reflects several factors, including academic achievement, academic growth, chronic absenteeism, and English Language Proficiency.  Overall, Cottondale Elementary School received a letter grade of a “D”, accumulating a total of 68 points on all indicators. While we are disappointed in our overall score, we also recognize that this score is only a snapshot of our overall school.  Listed below are a few areas of focus for our school that we believe will help ALL students achieve academic success.

    • Focus on Character Education and building relationships!
      • Our school motto is “Cottondale CLIMBS! We care, lead, inspire, motivate, and believe so that together we all succeed!”
      • One of our school goals is to make every student feel safe, loved, and welcome at our school. “No significant learning can occur without a significant relationship.” James Comer. 
    • Focus on Instruction
      • Our teachers meet weekly in professional learning communities to analyze student data, plan instruction, and develop targeted focus groups to help each child succeed.
      • Our teachers participate in ongoing professional development from our assistant principal and instructional coach to learn new instructional strategies to meet the needs of all students.
    • Attendance Matters
      • Chronic Absenteeism is defined by missing 15 or more days during a school year, regardless if it is excused or unexcused.
      • Parents can help by ensuring that students are at school every day, all day.

    The Scantron 2018-19 benchmark assessments have already shown improvement in both reading and math.  If you have any questions concerning this report card or any area of our school, please feel free to contact us.  Thank you for helping us reach our goals.
