THE SELMA CITY SCHOOLS ALABAMA UNIFIED REPORT
The Alabama Department of Education released Alabama
Unified Report (AUR) today, which includes the Alabama State Report Card,
containing a letter grade for schools and school systems across the state.
Selma City Schools received a 76/C, which reflects several different factors
including academic achievement, academic growth, chronic absenteeism, as well
as graduation rates and college and career readiness (for high schools).
“The vision of Selma City Schools is to be documented as a model school district. Our continued progress, such as the gains shown in our report card data, demonstrates that we are on the right path and moving in the direction of performance excellence. We are proud of the improvements and progress across the district. We congratulate our scholars, teachers, and leaders for their hard work and thank our community partners for their continued support.”
The State of Alabama introduced the Alabama State
Report Card so students, parents, taxpayers and others could easily understand
how their schools are performing, just as report cards help parents understand
how their kids are doing. The goal of the report card is to provide a starting
point and to offer easy-to-understand and concise information showing how a
school is doing. We encourage parents and others to explore the new Alabama
State Report Card, which provides multi- year, detailed information about our
school and allows you to compare our school to others throughout the state
using a wide range of measures. This information can be found at: http://www.alsde.edu/dept/erc/Pages/home.aspx
Whether a school receives a higher or lower letter
grade, the release of the Alabama State Report Card represents an opportunity
for schools, parents and community members to work together to help every
school in the state succeed.
We have implemented Academies of Academic Excellence
in our elementary schools and have begun infusing our curriculum with STEAM and
STEM activities throughout the district. R.B. Hudson STEAM Academy has
implemented STEAM Day every Friday to ensure that our scholars are hands-on
with the latest in science, technology, engineering, arts, and math. This will
broaden the learning experiences for our students, which can only help to
increase our letter grade going forward. We are still 1:1 at R. B. Hudson,
giving every student access to a computer for use at school and home. Selma
City Schools is working to become the hub for all things STEAM in the Blackbelt
and beyond. Our district adopted online educational system, Edgenuity, is
assisting our efforts to remediate and accelerate our students, providing 24-7
access to learning.
This letter grade is a snapshot of the school and a
conversation starter for communities. Together, we will continue to identify
ways we can provide our students with the best educational experience possible.
Selma City Schools is committed to excellence!
