Message from the Superintendent

  • September 30, 2023

    Hillcrest High Students, Families, Faculty, and Staff, 

    We want to make you aware of a situation involving a Hillcrest High faculty member. We have learned that Edward Kramarczyk has been charged as part of a criminal investigation. Mr. Kramarczyk is a career technical education teacher at Hillcrest High School. He is new to the system this year. The charges do not stem from anything that occurred at school. Any further information that would be released regarding this investigation would come from law enforcement.  

    Under Alabama law, the Superintendent may place an employee on administrative leave pending a criminal investigation. However, we cannot legally share information on personnel matters of any one individual employee.  

    Again, while the charges do not stem from anything that happened at school, it is very concerning anytime a school employee is involved in a criminal investigation. Please know the safety of our students is our highest priority. Please contact us directly with any questions or concerns you may have. 


    Dr. Keri C. Johnson, Superintendent
