Every Child a Graduate. Every Graduate Prepared.

​Accountability

The ALSDE Accountability team works with Alabama’s districts/schools and sections within the ALSDE to provide information regarding Alabama’s Accountability Models. In addition, the Accountability section assists districts in the utilization of this data to make research based decisions that are best suited to meet the needs of students.

Alabama's Accountability System


Alabama's Accountability System is a unified approach to meeting the requirements of the Every Student Succeeds Act (ESSA) and Alabama Act 2012-402.  Federal law mandates the use of various indicators for meaningful differentiation among schools while Alabama Act 2012-402 requires the State Superintendent to develop a school grading system.
