The Alabama Department of Education released "report cards" for the first time today, February 1, 2018. The report card contains letter grades for each school and school system across the state. The Jasper City School System received a "B", which reflects several factors, including chronic absenteeism, graduation rates and college and career readiness rates for our high school. Given the nature of the report card, we are pleased with a “B” for the district. The Jasper City School System scored above the state average on every indicator. We will continue to plan for improvement and provide the best possible education for our students.
The report card grading scale is based on five things: academic achievement, academic growth, graduation rate, college and career readiness and chronic absenteeism. Schools will be sending home additional information on individual school scores.
