Talladega County Schools to remain on blended learning model through January

SYLACAUGA, Ala. – Current data suggests an increase in positive COVID-19 cases both statewide and across the nation.

 Health officials in Alabama are extremely concerned about the impact of the recent Thanksgiving holidays and the upcoming Christmas season on the current COVID case load.

In an effort to promote the highest level of safety and wellness among students, teachers, and staff, Talladega County Schools will remain on the blended learning model until the end of January 2021.

Students currently attending the Beacon Virtual Academy may remain as full-time remote learners or return to school on the blended learning model by completing a BVA Intent Form. The third nine weeks will begin on Jan. 5, 2021, for both blended and remote learners.

Moving forward, social distancing will be practiced as applicable with other safety protocols while maintaining a robust academic program. Masks/face coverings will be required for all students six years of age and older. All sanitation practices will remain to ensure the cleanliness of both our school facilities and school buses.

The ultimate goal is to return to “traditional” school as soon as conditions are favorable for doing so. Additional information will be collected and reviewed at the end of January and will determine the schedule for the remainder of the year.
