UPDATE: Alabama public schools will not administer anymore state assessments this year.

There will also be no state report cards, as there will not be an accountability update for schools this year.

State education officials say this will relieve the burden off of educators and administrators. They say prior to the state-mandated school closure, there were low attendance rates at some schools due to anxiety among parents about coronavirus.
