Accountability & Assessments
Public schools throughout Alabama are required to provide information about themselves to the community in the form of an annual School Accountability Report Card. These report cards provide a variety of data to allow the public to evaluate and compare schools in seven major areas.
- demographic information
- school safety and climate for learning
- academic data
- class size
- teacher and staff information
- curriculum and instruction
- fiscal and expenditure data
Early Literacy and Dyslexia
- In October 2015, the Alabama State School Board passed administrative code that officially recognized dyslexia as a learning challenge for some of Alabama’s children.
- In 2019, the Alabama legislature passed the Alabama Literacy Act, or ALA, to support schools in improving reading proficiency for all K-3 Alabama students.
- Choctaw County K-3 teachers deliver appropriate grade-level instruction anchored in the science of reading as well as timely, targeted interventions as needed.
- Choctaw County Elementary and Southern Choctaw Elementary use the S.P.I.R.E. program for elementary students who exhibit reading deficiencies or characteristics of dyslexia.
