Goals and Objectives

The Project Unity Education Subcommittee is dedicated to the continuous learning and growth of all students; we will continue to work together while keeping student needs at the center of all decision-making; and will build strong, respectful partnerships that support student success by:  

    • Strengthening academic and instructional programming to support student needs, talents, interests, and cultural diversity  
    • Establishing collaborative partnerships that support academic and instructional programming 
    • Finding additional ways to inform and engage parents in their child’s academic, instructional, and social emotional learning experiences 
    • Finding resources and implementing programs to support the encourage development of the whole child through social and emotional learning 
    • Creating a city-wide process to leverage community partners to support students’ needs, interests and talents 
    • Building a system for identifying, gathering and analyzing current and existing data, as well as identifying possible gaps in data to develop more meaningful programs 
    • Recommend to the Elevate Tuscaloosa Advisory Committee and City Council that the Gateway incorporate into its mission a digital media center with an emphasis on education
