    Alabama State Repord Card Released

    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 purpose of this reporting system is to provide parents, community members, and other indicators of how a school or school system is performing. While one letter grade does not define a student, school, or system, it is a starting point for discussion.

    The grade received reflects several factors, including academic achievement, academic growth, chronic absenteeism, as well as graduation rates and college and career readiness (for high schools). Of course, one grade does not tell the whole story. We hope the grade will add to our community discussion about how to improve the education for each student in our school – regardless of where it falls on the grading scale.

    Overall, the Brookwood Elementary received a letter grade of a ‘D’, accumulating a total of 66 points on all indicators. As we move forward, we will intensify our focus on student learning growth and attendance by implementing the following strategies:

         * Concentrate on content standards so that each is clearly understood by teachers and the learning targets represented within 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 obtained on a periodic basis such that instructional changes may be made as needed. Students who are struggling must be identified early and appropriate interventions applied. Students who are higher achievers need to be challenged and presented with enrichment and extension learning activities.

         * 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.

    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. While the report card provides a snapshot of performance, we applaud the work within our schools to assist students. We appreciate the support and continued efforts by parents and so many in our community who partner with us on behalf of our 18,700 students.”
