During the next few months, the Tuscaloosa County School System will be participating in the Continuous Improvement Process. This process is intended to help schools and school systems identify strengths, identify ways to improve, and set goals based on data and feedback from stakeholders.
As one part of this process, TCSS asks our stakeholders to provide feedback through surveys. Please find the survey or surveys below that pertain to you as a TCSS stakeholder, whether you are a student, parent/guardian, or faculty/staff member. The surveys are short and should take less than 10 minutes to complete. Please complete the surveys that pertain to you by Friday, September 11, 2020.
School Meals now available to all TCSS students, at no cost to families! All students may now eat breakfast and lunch at school, and they will not have to pay for their meals. This applies to both on-campus and off-campus learners regardless of whether they qualify for free or reduced-price meals.
Please Note: If you don't see your teacher, check back later. Teachers are still adding their videos!
What is the Anonymous Alerts App?The Anonymous Alerts anit-bullying and safety app reporting system helps combat bullying and other negative activity in schools by empowering students to speak up. Social and peer pressure are some of the hardest obstacles for students to overcome.The system allows for 1-way or 2-way anonymous encrypted communication between submitters ( students, parents and community members) and district administration and/or school staff. Users of the system have the option to remain anonymous or reveal their idenity when submitting a report.How does it work?Anonymous Alerts moblie applications can be downloaded directly from the Apple, Google Play or Chrome Stores. Tuscaloosa County School System supplies students with an activation code (tuscaloosacounty), making the app remarkably easy to use and students select which school the message should be sent. In addition, informational posters explaining how to use the app will be displayed throughout the schools and offices in the district.Anonymous Alerts will allow students to report suspicious activity. When a student submits the anonymous report, administrators will recieve a notification of the report and will be able to act on reports in a timely manner. The system will be monitored from 7:30 to 3:30 each week day.
