Governor Kay Ivey Announces Creation of ASCTE
In her annual State of the State address, Alabama Governor Kay Ivey announced the creation of the Alabama School of Cyber Technology and Education. Governor Ivey is passionate about education and has launched the Strong Start, Strong Finish (SSSF) education initiative that focuses on education, computer science, and workforce development. The mission of ASCTE supports these three critical areas. "This school will prepare some of our state's highest achieving students to enter the growing fields of cyber technology and engineering,” Ivey said. “Just as Huntsville has always been on the leading edge of the rocket and aerospace industries, the Alabama School of Cyber Technology and Engineering will ensure that Alabama students are at the forefront of today’s emerging technologies."
