  • Reminder

    In light of the flu epidemic please be reminded that the TCSS Board Policy states:

     

    “Students should not be sent to school until they have been fever free for at least 24 hours without taking a fever reducing medication.”

     

    Please make sure your child has been fever free for 24 hours before returning to school.  Our teachers are wiping down the desks and other items daily to help prevent the spread of the flu and other contagious diseases.  We want all of our children and teachers to get well and stay well.  Thank you so much for your help!

  • Alabama A-F Report Card

     

    The Alabama State Department has released the A-F Report Card for our school.

     

    The report card is created from three categories:

    1.  Student Achievement: This is a measure of how well our students in grades 3-5 did in reading and math on the Spring 2016 ACT Aspire.  Our score for Student Achievement is 74.89 

     2.  Learning Gains: This measure shows the progress individual students are making over the three years the ACT Aspire has been administered.  Our score for Learning Gains is 98.21 

    3.  Local Indicator: This is a measure each school and school system identified as an area of need.  Our local indicator was parent involvement.  For the 2015-2016 school year, we recorded the number of parents who attended events and volunteered at school.  We provided data that showed parental involvement increased from the 2014-15 school year to the 2015-16 school year.  Our score for Local Indicator is 100.

     

    What does this mean for Walker Elementary?

    Results over the last three years show clear evidence that the students at Walker Elementary School are improving and the instructional strategies that are being implemented by our teachers are making a difference.  While we still have not reached the level we would like in "Student Achievement" we are pleased in the progress our students are making.  The strong scores in "Learning Gains" show that we are moving in the right direction because it reflects results from all students, at all levels of academic performance (low, middle, or high), and shows that gains are being made.

     

    The results released through the A-F Report Card show what we have known all along - at Walker Elementary School that "We're All in this Together."
