A Closer Look at Our Progress

State Report Cards Released This Morning

Progress is Being Made

The Tuscaloosa City Schools saw improvement in the 2019 edition of the State Report Card. TCS noted a three-point increase over the previous year, marking its highest score to date since the report card's inception, earning a score of 83, or the letter grade of "B". While it is important to mark the progress of the system and its schools, Superintendent Dr. Mike Daria said it's also important to focus on the work being done to achieve the outcomes.

Daria credits educators who are implementing signature initiatives of the TCS strategic plan: Reading before Third Grade, digital transformation, summer learning and strong professional development.


"While we recognize the progress of our district, "better" is not enough. We will continue our work to make sure all schools reach the same standard of excellence so that each and every student is highly successful," he said. "We have incredible teachers, leaders, Board members, students, families, and community and are certain that we are going to continue this trajectory with all schools being an A."


The Alabama State Department of Education released the 2019 report cards Friday morning.
