“Congratulations to these wonderful Alabama public schools. The CLAS Schools of Distinction provide excellent examples of the significant learning opportunities taking place in public education in Alabama. Further, the stakeholders at every School of Distinction are to be commended for striving for excellence daily,” comments Dr. Vic Wilson, executive director of the Council for Leaders in Alabama Schools (CLAS).

This program would not be possible without its generous sponsors. LEAN Frog is the program’s keystone partner and foundation partners are American Fidelity Assurance, Classworks, Curriculum Associates, Edgenuity, and PowerSchool. CLAS appreciates its sponsors for the invaluable support of the CLAS Banner School Awards program.
