In 1996 Calera Elementary School moved from Title I Target Assistance programming to become a Title I School-wide Program. In 2000, Calera Elementary School became an Alabama Reading Initiative Literacy Demonstration Site. In 2006, Calera Elementary School became one of the first Alabama Math, Science and Technology Initiative (AMSTI) schools in Shelby County.
