Will It Be Time To Change The Grading System In Alabama Schools

After five years of using letter grades on annual school and district report cards, Alabama’s top educator said it’s time for a review to make sure these are the best measures to use.

“We are pulling a task force together,” state superintendent Eric Mackey told state board members during Thursday’s work session in Montgomery. The 20-person group, which is still being formed, could have changes to recommend to the board by winter, he said.

But any changes the board approves for the report card would not go into effect until November 2026, he said, reflecting the 2025-26 school year measures.
