Alabama School Boards Praise eBOARDsolutions


In an article published in the Dothan Eagle, eBOARDsolutions received praise from several local Alabama school boards citing the value and cost-savings of the system.

The article discusses the Coffee County School System’s approval of the contract for newly appointed Superintendent Terry Weeks. During that same meeting, the board also gave Weeks the authority to decide on whether or not to adopt eBOARD’s Evaluation software to evaluate the superintendent, central office personnel, principals, assistant principals and teachers around the school system.

In the article, District 6 Representative Shag LaPrade notes that he had spoken with superintendents from Athens, Hartselle and Sylacauga, all of whom spoke positively about the solution.

“They just love it and think it’s the greatest thing in the world,” LaPrade said. “They have the full blown eBoard system program … They said we’d be getting those once we became enticed with this one.”

LaPrade said he also spoke with secretaries in Guntersville and Albertville who said the software “saved them a lot of work.” He noted that eBOARD would save the school system money and provide effective evaluation experiences.

The article also reported that the motion passed unanimously that Weeks would talk with eBoard representatives to determine if the software would be something for the system to pursue.

Update: Since the publication of this article, Coffee County has adopted eBOARD’s Meetings, Policies and Evaluations software.
