The state of Alabama issued its Report Card on all local schools Friday, Dec. 28. The Madison County School System educates 18,000+ students throughout 27 schools.
The Madison County School System received the following grades from the Alabama State Department of Education:
- The district received a letter grade of 86 (B) – up one point from last year.
- All 27 schools received an A or a B
- Nine MCSS schools received a letter grade of A – up from three last year.
- MCSS schools averaged an 88.6 – a 5.3 point increase from last year.
This parallels the improvement MCSS students have shown in other academic areas including Advanced Placement where Madison County students lead the state with over 3,000 AP exams taken with 1,139 Qualifying Scores. With each qualifying score, students earn college credit.
Madison County Superintendent Matt Massey stated: “I am proud of the results and gains which are a direct result of the hard work put in by our students, teachers, administrators, support staff, and board members. We always look for ways to improve, and we will use information from this report card to do so. With that said, no “grade” that is largely weighted on one test can accurately and completely represent how much our students learn throughout the school year.”
