New online report card system released in Alabama

MONTGOMERY, Ala. (AP) – Alabama parents can now view report cards for their child’s school and school system.

The Alabama Department of Education in December released the report cards. The system gives scores in four areas: learning gains; student achievement, local indicators and the graduation rate for high schools.
