Austin Middle School recognized with regional award

DECATUR — Austin Middle School was among three Alabama schools honored Tuesday by the Southern Regional Education Board at its Making Schools Work Conference in Nashville.

Decatur’s Austin Middle School, Birmingham’s Carver High School and the Sylacauga City School District received the 2024 Gene Bottoms Pacesetter School Award. The honor recognizes schools that apply one of organization’s improvement frameworks and that have achieved success related to graduation rates, readiness for college and careers and credential objectives.

According to the board, Austin Middle was selected because of its focus on student achievement and teacher support during the 2022-2023 school year. Austin Middle teachers implemented small group instruction and monitored student data folders while also teaching formal and informal peer observation, where veteran teachers opened their classrooms to novice teachers and others striving to improve their teaching.
