Talladega City Schools are STILL HERE!

Three years ago, Talladega City Schools created this blog under the leadership of Dr. Frank Buck to unite the parents and community of the school district. Since that time, the schools have taken off in the development of school-based blogs. Dr. Buck has since retired, but you can continue to follow our schools, by visiting the following websites:

School Attendance


School Attendance is a concern for everyone. Policies and procedures for schools are getting tougher and attendance is closely monitored not just by school employees. Each month schools are required to turn in a report to the district attorney for review.

Do You Believe...?

This was posted last year by Dr. Frank Buck. It is a "must see" featuring a child from the Dallas Independent School District with a powerful message for all who work with children. It is worth a repeat. Take a minute and receive a blessing.

After watching this it will remind you of why we chose education. Our school system is fortunate to have dedicated, experienced teachers, new teachers on board, support from the Central Office, and parents who want their children to succeed. I believe in TALLADEGA CITY SCHOOLS!

ADMINISTRATORS IN TRAINING!


Administrators met this morning for their first training on EDUCATEAlabama. After reading and preparing for Module 1, the administrators discussed all four phases of the evaluation program. The facilitation and dialogue pertaining to the first module was informative in preparing for the implementation of this new evaluation system created by the State Department of Education which is based on Alabama's new Quality Teaching Standards (AQTS).
In this photo, Mr. Anglin celebrates his score of 100 on Module 1.

As you can see from the photos taken during this session, LEARNING IS FUN!!!!

Mrs. Dye and Mrs. Turner are engaged in learning.

Ms. Baker facilitating!





THS administrators are hard at work or hardly working????


Thanks Mrs. Laros for taking photos during this professional development opportunity!
