Equal Education Opportunity Statement
It is the official policy of the Sylacauga City Board of Education to provide all students, including language minority students, migrant students, and homeless students, with meaningful and appropriate educational programs. No person shall on the grounds of race, color, disability, sex, religion, creed, national origin, age, or economic status be excluded from participation in, be denied the benefits of, or be subjected to discrimination under any program, activity or employment. The Board of Education assures that any barriers to enrollment and education of students will be eliminated.
Federal Programs are comprised of a variety of programs financed through the "No Child Left Behind Act of 2001". These programs provide services to help schools effectively develop, implement and evaluate their plans for the academic success of all children. Indian Valley and Pinecrest Elementary Schools are Title I School-Wide Schools. Nichols-Lawson Middle School is a Targeted Assistance school serving only those who qualify for services through the State Department of Education. By providing focused attention and assistance in identified areas of need, our students will obtain a high-quality education from highly qualified and properly credential teachers which will enable them to reach high standards, attaining proficiency or better in reading and math and on federal and state standards and assessments.
