The report is an unscientific but useful inventory of key information available to the public online at the state's 67 county school systems and 65 city districts, said Trisha Crain of Hoover. Crain, a mother of three, conducted the review for the Alabama School Community Information Network, which formed earlier this year and maintains a Web site at
Crain and some assistants evaluated each school system's Web site using a checklist of 34 types of information ranging from basic phone numbers or 3-mail addresses to daily lunch menus, academic rankings and complex financial data, including audits, school-by-school expenditures and archived financial statements.
"I've been aware of how great Shelby County's Web site is for a long time," said Crain, who began her search to find an ideal district Web site for the Hoover system to emulate.
Crain, who has a son at Hoover High School and two children in private schools, launched a Web site similar to ASCIN's site in 2006 as an information source for Hoover parents. She said the Hoover system's Web site has improved tremendously in the last few years.
She plans to share ASCIN's report with State Superintendent of Education Joe Morton and the state Board of Education.
"I'll give them the link and say, 'This is really great news. I'm excited with how much information they (the state's school systems) already have online," Crain said.
Crain said she was glad to see the site "rack up even more points" and expected to see improvements on all the school sites when she does a follow-up in September.
