Hoover school board votes to release much anticipated report

Updated 11:13 a.m.

HOOVER — The Hoover city school board voted 4-1 last night to release the highly anticipated investigative report into allegations of wrongdoing at Hoover High School.

According to board Vice President Suzy Baker, the full report, 68 pages, will be released at 9 a.m. Saturday online at and at the Hoover Public Library, with copies also available at the school system's central office.

The report is the result of a special investigation into possible academic improprieties by retired Federal Judge Sam Pointer Junior involving possible grade fixing within the high school's athletic program. Board members admitted spending about $150,000 for the report.

Members declined to say if the report contained information critical of head football coach Rush Propst.
