Local Money Pays for Teachers, Administrators and Support Personnel

With the discussion beginning anew about how much money the Hoover City Council allocates to Hoover City Schools, we thought it would be helpful to share the most recent reports filed with the Alabama State Department of Education showing the source of funds (state, federal or local) for teachers and support personnel that work in our schools.

These are summaries, by school, as of October 2015. There are two reports: one for certified personnel, one for support personnel.

Certified personnel include any position that requires a certificate, which includes teachers and school-level administrators.

Support personnel include all other positions, including bus drivers, bus aides, operations personnel, and some central office personnel.

The source of funds indicates whether those personnel are paid with state, federal, or local funds. FTE is the acronym for “full-time equivalent” which simply means one full-time position.

The amount shown is a yearly figure, only depicting base salary amounts. No academic or athletic supplements are included in these numbers.

As you can see, Hoover City Schools use local money to fund a lot of certified personnel, particularly at the middle and high school levels.

If you need more details about what the reports show, contact Hoover City Schools directly. The information below should get you started.
