Five Bessemer Schools Get Money for Achievement

Five Bessemer City schools that performed well on accountability assesment last year will receive $52,500 in monetary awards from the state.

The Alabama Department of Education notified interim Superintendent Michale Foster last week about the reward the schools would be receiving. The state rewards schools in four categories: Advancing the Challenge, Meeting the Challenge, Exceeding the Challenge and Addressing the Challenge.

Abrams, Greenwood, Hard, Davis and Jonesboro elementary will share the reward. The former four, who will each receive $5,900, were recognized for Meeting the Challenge because they met state goals for two years consecutively.

Jonesboro was awarded for Metting, Exceeding and Advancing the Challenge and they will receive $28,900. Foster said each school will decide how to spend its money.
