BIRMINGHAM, Ala. (WBRC) - The Alabama State Department of Education has released its list of failing schools for 2022, as required by the Alabama Accountability Act.

There are 79 schools on the list. The number is up by four from the previous year when there were 75 failing schools.

The number of Birmingham schools included on the list declined this year.

Seven schools worked their way off the list, including Booker T. Washington K-8, Brown Elementary, Hemphill Elementary, West End Academy, Hudson K-8, Jones Valley Middle, Putnam Middle school.

Four Birmingham schools were added to the list for 2022, including Arrington Elementary, Central Park Elementary, Inglenook K-8, and Parker High School.

Birmingham City Schools Superintendent Dr. Mark Sullivan said he is pleased with the continued improvement in academic achievement for all students. “Our educators are laser-focused on academic achievement and our scholars, and their families are committed to success,” Sullivan said. “We still have opportunity for improvement. We will not be satisfied until none of our schools are included on this list.”

Jefferson County Schools Superintendent, Dr. Walter B. Gonsoulin added the following statement:

“We are not making excuses. We are owning this data and establishing an intentional and targeted improvement plan. No individual administrator, teacher, staff member, or student caused this situation, and it is not productive to point fingers. However, I truly believe individuals working together with a common purpose will be the catalyst to move the needle in the right direction. As we communicated to parents and school employees Thursday night, the district leadership team has already met with each school’s principal. We stand ready to assist them in any way possible. We will conduct a comprehensive evaluation of all areas of the schools to assist in developing a plan for improvement. The district will ensure that the schools have the resources and support necessary to improve student achievement.”
