SYLACAUGA, Ala. – Sylacauga City Schools will return to full traditional-student learning on Oct. 26 for the second nine weeks of the academic year.

The proposal to amend the district’s Roadmap to Reopening Schools, which was approved by the Board of Education in August, will include only those students who opted for traditional in-class instruction. Virtual and blended students will continue with those formats for the remainder of the semester. 

Students currently on a two day a week schedule will attend classes each Monday, Tuesday, Thursday, and Friday. Wednesdays will continue to be an e-Learning day for all students. Cleaning and sanitization protocol will be followed at all times, with Wednesdays allowing for more detailed cleaning practices.  


In presenting the amended plan to the board at this morning’s called meeting, superintendent Dr. Jon Segars stated, “While we continue to place the health and safety of this entire community first, the need for more in-person instruction is critical for our students. Our staff is fully prepared to welcome an increased number of students in our facilities, and we are equally prepared to deliver instruction to those at home through the end of the semester.”  

“We will be intentional in mitigating risks,” added Amy Price, Board President.

The board unanimously approved the amendment.
