The Tuscaloosa County School System believes that regular school attendance is important to students and to the school system. Regular attendance by students facilitates development of the skills and knowledge necessary to function in a democratic society. Therefore, the Board endeavors to secure, in compliance with Alabama law, the prompt and regular attendance of students and to secure their proper conduct, and to hold the parents/guardians or other persons in charge or control of students responsible and liable for such students' nonattendance and improper conduct.
It is the belief of the Tuscaloosa County School System that a uniform code of conduct for students is important to the pursuit of academic excellence in order that the students may have meaningful learning experiences. This can only be accomplished in schools where the environment is free from distraction caused by disruptive behavior. Creating such an environment requires the cooperation of the parents/guardians, students, Board of Education, and all employees of the school system.
The Student Services department is here to assist schools, parents/guardians, and students in understanding the policies and procedures of the school system regarding attendance, discipline, and state laws. We also provide information regarding enrollment, school zones, non-public schooling in Alabama, social and emotional health, student bullying, Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act, Title IX, school transcripts/graduation verificaitons, and child labor permits. Please contact us if we can be of assistance to you.
