CLICK ON THE LINK TO SEE HOW YOUR SCHOOL SCORED
The first report card is out for Alabama public schools under a new grading system which gives every school and school system a letter grade.
The Alabama Department of Education released the first report on Thursday.
The report showed that 76-percent of the state’s 137 school systems received an A, B, or C grade for performance.
The grades are based on the latest test scores and on how much students improve in reading and math from one year to the next.
Alabama legislators voted back in 2012 to require letter grades for schools and school systems.
Federal law requires similar reports.
The new letter grade report cards are described as prototypes since the process is still being tweaked.
