Seventy-Five Percent of Alabama Public Schools Meet Goals

The Alabama Department of Education says 75% of the state's public schools met goals set by the Federal No Child Left Behind Act.

Some of the schools that did not are in the Wiregrass area.

Those include Dothan and Northview High Schools and Girard and Honeysuckle Middle Schools in the Dothan City School System.

In the Houston County System, Ashford High and elementary as well as middle schools in Rehobeth and Wicksburg also failed to make adequate yearly progress.

Superintendent Dr. Sam Nichols, of Dothan City Schools said, “Special education students didn't score as high as they should have. That kept us from making AYP. So we'll be working very hard with that group of students to bring their achievement level up.”
