Governor Ivey Comments on Approval of Dr. Ed Richardson’s Contract as Interim State Superintendent

“I am thankful for the work of the subcommittee on the Interim State Superintendent’s contract. I am encouraged by Dr. Richardson’s leadership and his swift action to develop a strong Every Student Succeeds Act plan for Alabama.
“Dr. Richardson has my confidence, and that of the State Board of Education, as evidenced in the approval of his contract this morning. I look forward to working alongside him to ensure all Alabama’s children are given the tools they need to be successful in the classroom and in life.”
