Each year, the Alabama State Department of Education scores all state schools and gives each a grade.
ACADEMICALLY, we scored a "B" as we had 84% growth in student achievement. This is great news! However, our grade for ATTENDANCE was NOT good as we had about 23% of our students who missed 18 or more days. If students are absent 18 or more days, even if excused by doctor, it is considered CHRONIC ABSENTEEISM
