A Note From the Principal
Dear Parents and Community,
On October 18, 2019, the Alabama State Department of Education released the Alabama Unified Report Card for the state, school systems, and schools. The purpose of this reporting system is to provide parents, community members, and others indicators of how a school and system are performing. The grade received reflects several factors, including academic achievement, academic growth, chronic absenteeism. Of course, one grade does not tell the whole story.
Faucett-Vestavia Elementary School received a 94/A. This is up from the 85/B we received on the previous report card. Dr. Davie, Superintendent of the Tuscaloosa County School System, stated, “The Alabama Unified Report Card provides one source of information about our schools and school system. Our faculty, staff, and administrators will continue to work diligently every day to meet the needs of our diverse student population and to show improvement for each student and school.”
The faculty and staff are working on the following areas to improve:
· Concentrate on content standards so that each is clearly understood by teachers and the learning targets represented with each. It is important that teachers are engaged in collaborative work to analyze student data, content standards, and assure the appropriate level of rigor is in place.
· Use formative data to guide our instructional focus. Students who struggle must be identified early and provided with appropriate interventions. Students who are higher achievers need to be challenged.
· Strengthen efforts with parents to assure that students attend school, on time and all day, every day that is possible. Parents are key partners in this effort!
· Provide high quality professional development to enhance teachers’ abilities in instructional strategies and student engagement.
We are excited by our progress and will continue to strive for a grade of 100.
