Measuring Results

In 2012, the Decatur City Schools Foundation began a partnership with the Public Affairs Research Council of Alabama (PARCA) to assist in reviewing and evaluating district test scores and graduation rates. This relationship allows the Foundation to establish where our efforts are most needed in regard to funding and partnering with the school system to provide continual improvement. In addition, the Foundation has established a Data & Accountability Committee, which meets consistently to review various types of information available on the Department of Education's website related to Decatur City Schools. The Data & Accountability Committee regularly reviews how programs and funding impact test scores in our system.
