State to Release School Report Cards

UNDATED, Ala. (AP) - Public school report cards will be released Monday by the Alabama Department of Education.

The tests results are used to determine whether elementary, middle and high schools are meeting, or making progress toward meeting, federal standards in reading and math under the federal No Child Left Behind law.

Last year, the accountability data showed 40 Alabama schools failed to meet requirements.

The state school board meets today at 9:30 a.m. in Montgomery.
