School News and Headlines
Dear Parents of Big Sandy Students,
The Alabama State Department of Education recently released the new Alabama Unified Report Care 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 or school system is performing.
The grade received by schools reflects several factors, including academic achievement, academic growth, and chronic absenteeism. Big Sandy Elementary received a letter grade of an “A” (91). This is up from last year’s score of 81. We are thrilled with our score and will continue to strive for even more improvement.
In an effort to increase our school’s overall progress, Big Sandy Elementary will:
- focus on increasing the explicit, rigorous, and engaging instruction of all content standards.
- focus on ensuring the students’ understanding of the learning targets.
- instill within our faculty through Professional Learning Communities, a more determined mindset geared towards an intense effort to identify barriers preventing student success.
We appreciate your support and continued efforts as parents in helping us to strive to continually improve student achievement at Big Sandy Elementary.
