UPDATE: Changes were made to the AAA in June 2015. This post has not been updated.
The timeline below takes you through the birth of the Alabama Accountability Act (AAA) in 2013 through January 5, 2015.
Useful information as we await the Alabama Supreme Court’s decision regarding the AAA. (UPDATE: The Alabama Supreme Court upheld the AAA in March 2015.)
The events on the timeline have to do with the passage of the AAA, the legal wranglings, the release of the “failing” schools lists (the 2015-2016 list was due out on November 1….it’s late) and information about scholarships and tax credits. Many thanks to the hard-working reporters covering these events.
