The Board Office is now closed to the public since Alabama is considered a “hotspot” for increase of COVID-19 cases and is one of the lowest vaccinated states in the nation. The Delta variant is the leading cause of COVID-19 cases in Alabama and is highly contagious. This has now affected our staff and service by electronic means will be the most effective way to communicate with our office. Please contact the office by email at questions@abec.alabama.gov and we will respond to you accordingly. Please be patient and know that we WILL respond but there will be a delay in providing these responses.

Thank you!
