Failing Alabama Schools List Out Today

Failing Alabama Schools List Out Today

Posted: Updated:
MONTGOMERY, Ala. -

 

The state is releasing the names of schools that are failing under a new Alabama law that lets parents receive tax credits for sending their children to a better school.

State Superintendent Tommy Bice holds a news conference in Montgomery on Tuesday morning to make the names public.

The schools are being labeled as failing under the Alabama Accountability Act, passed by the state's Republican-controlled Legislature this year.

Parents are eligible for tax credits if they transfer students out of schools that are considered as failing under the legislation.

The tax credits are worth about $3,500 annually. Parents can receive the credits if they send children to private academies or public schools that aren't considered to be failing.
