Tallapoosa County Schools delay start of school


ALEXANDER CITY, Ala. – Tallapoosa County Schools will start later than originally planned.

At a school board meeting Tuesday just before noon, the school system approved to delay the start of school until Aug. 31. This will also allow for five professional development days to be inserted into the calendar before school starts so teachers can better prepare for remote and virtual learning.

This decision was based on a recommendation from Alabama State Department of Education superintendent Dr. Eric Mackey. The original start date was Aug. 21.

This will not affect athletic competitions Tallapoosa County Schools’ teams.
