“Leaders are Readers” is a community-wide initiative to encourage students to make time for summer reading.

Tuscaloosa City Schools, in partnership with Tuscaloosa Education Foundation, Cadence Bank, United Way, Rotary, and Reading Allies, will allow our children access to state and local civic, education, and community leaders through daily storybook recorded reading videos to be aired at 12 noon every weekday on the beginning July 6th through August 14th.

A huge "thank you" to our readers!

“Character counts” is an understatement. A full life derives from deep-seated habits that must develop for good character to be forged (Nabers, 2014). To bring character to the forefront of our work in the Tuscaloosa City and Tuscaloosa County Schools, the Tuscaloosa Education Foundation has created a TEF Character Committee.

TEF is proud to promote character education and assist our local schools with becoming a part of The HOPE Institute. The HOPE Institute equips educators to cultivate character one school at a time. Please click the link provided below to read about the grant process and apply.

Each year, the Tuscaloosa Education Foundation recognizes an elementary, middle and high school teacher in each system that is new to the profession.

Each recipient receives $150 toward their classroom set up for the new year. Due to COVID-19 and the New Teacher Orientation sessions being virtual, the teachers were chosen randomly from a list provided by the System HR Office. Dr. Boman surprised them at their school prior to the beginning of school. Congratulations to our award winners and thank you for choosing the teaching profession!

The new teacher recipients are pictured above and are as follows:

  • Lauren Perkins, Oakdale Elementary School

  • Andrew Robertson, Northridge Middle School

  • Sean Gibson, Northridge High School

  • Michaela Woday, Big Sandy Elementary School

  • Scott Miller, Echols Middle School

  • Samantha Day, Tuscaloosa County High School
