DECATUR, AL (WAFF) -

Decatur's school superintendent said his system is on the right track.

Tuesday morning, Superintendent Dr. Ed Nichols gave his "State of the Schools Address."

He said the system has a five-year strategic plan that involves getting students ready for tests like the ACT and improving communication between parents, their children and their schools.

"We've got an opportunity to be able to recognize the individual growth of every child through computerized testing," said Nichols. "We've got expanded opportunities for kids to do career tech and workforce academies. Our test scores are up and our enrollment's up so you couldn't ask for much better than that in our opinion right now."
