Alabama's Education Report Card, 2011-2012
Alabama State Department of Education
Educational progress has been moving in the right direction for several years in Alabama. Now, with the implementation of Alabama's own Plan 2020, an even higher level of accountability for students, teachers, administrators, support systems, and schools/school systems, Alabama is poised to experience unprecedented growth. Add to that, the Alabama College and Career Ready standards, one of the most comprehensive sets of standards in the nation, and Alabama is on the cusp of becoming a leader in education reform. From classrooms to boardrooms, the changes being made to align the K-12 experience with the demands and expectations of higher education, business, and industry is unparalleled. Alabama's State Board of Education and the State Department of Education have very clear and specific goals: increasing graduation rates, moving students to proficiency, closing achievement gaps, and making sure their graduates are prepared for college and/or a career without remediation. Accomplishing these goals will ensure that Alabama graduates are prepared for a successful future in an ever-expanding workforce. This publication is a compilation of student, staffing, and funding information in tabulated form for the 2011-2012 school year in Alabama public schools. Information in this 2011-2012 Alabama's Education Report Card meets the requirements of the Code of Alabama (1975), Section 16-3-21 and the No Child Left Behind Act of 2001, Public Law 107-110.
