Sylacauga City Schools releases roadmap to re-opening; school calendar released


SYLACAUGA, Ala. – Sylacauga City Schools will welcome students back to school on Aug. 20, with teachers returning on Aug. 6, as the Alabama Department of Public Health guides a safe return to campuses.

“We are excited to get back to the classroom after what will be more than five months away. Our summer activities in high school sports have been a tremendous success so far, and in July we are hosting academic camps at Pinecrest and Nichols-Lawson,” said superintendent Dr. Jon Segars.

The district will offer both in-person and remote learning formats to meet the needs of all families. By bringing teachers back two weeks earlier than students, principals will be able to lead training in multiple on-line formats to include SchoolsPLP – a new curriculum covering PreK through 12th grade provided by the State Department of Education.

“We have used remote learning for many years with great results,” said Segars. “Our teachers are very strong in the use of on-line tools and have mastered the art of communicating with families and students who may not attend classes in our buildings.”

The District’s detailed plan for reopening will be finalized and released in mid-July. Information about registration, transportation, meal service, and health care will be included in the plan.
