This year, the Tuscaloosa County School System is excited to launch TCSS University (TCSS U), a program designed to engage members of our community who are passionate about education, give them a deeper understanding of issues facing our schools, and equip them to become informed advocates for education and students in our community. Applications are being accepted for this new program, now through Friday, September 20, 2019, at 4 pm. You will find more information about the program and application process below or through this document.
September is attendance awareness month. We will be awarding students with perfect attendance at the end of the month. This means no tardies, no check outs, and no absences. Let's see how many students can achieve this goal!
TCSS Introduces Anonymous Alerts Communications Tool
What is the Anonymous Alerts app?
The Anonymous Alerts anti-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 can act as a barrier to a student reporting this type of activity. Anonymous Alerts is a way to remove that barrier, by allowing a student to report without revealing their identity.
How does it work?
The system allows for one-way or two-way anonymous encrypted communications between submitters (students, parents, or community members) and district administrationand/or school staff. Users of the system have the option to remain anonymous or revealtheir identity when submitting a report.
