Posted on April 2, 2018
HUNTSVILLE - Governor Kay Ivey on Monday signed into law SB212, sponsored by Senator Arthur Orr and Representative Anthony Daniels, which creates the Alabama School of Cyber Technology and Engineering in Huntsville. She also signed HB175, the state's Education Budget.
The Alabama School of Cyber Technology and Engineering, will be an independent, residential school that is established for academically-motivated and gifted Alabama students with educational opportunities and experiences in the rapidly growing fields of cyber technology and engineering.
The school will also assist teachers, administrators, and superintendents across the state in replicating cyber technology and engineering studies in their own schools. The passage and signing of SB212 culminates an effort that began with Governor Ivey's charge to the Legislature, in her State of the State address in January, to establish the school.
