The Alabama Numeracy Act
The Alabama Numeracy Act was signed into law on April 5, 2022. The Alabama Numeracy Act has been established to implement steps to improve mathematic proficiency of public-school K-5 grade students and to ensure that those students are proficient in math at or above grade level by the end of the fifth grade by monitoring the progression of each student from one grade level to another. Some students may be invited to attend a Summer School program by failing to master their current grade level standards. JCS will monitor each student’s progress starting in kindergarten. Parents will be informed of such progress.
