• Dothan City Schools has been careful to create a plan to reopen schools with an eye toward flexibility. Our intent is the reopening of school in a traditional fashion. Naturally, any plan is contingent on the track that the coronavirus takes and also on complying with any executive or statewide orders.

    This website is designed to inform parents and staff of the plans for reopening our school campuses in August. In recent weeks we have received a clear message that parents and staff want options. On this website, we describe the options for returning to school. We believe these options will meet everyone's needs.



  • Governor Kay Ivey has committed $100 million in Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security (CARES) Act funding to deliver free internet access to eligible K-12 students in their homes this fall. The State of Alabama will use the funds to purchase internet service for low-income households with K-12 students so the children can participate in distance learning.

    The Alabama Broadband Connectivity for Students program will provide free internet access for eligible students who choose to participate. If your household is eligible, you will receive complete details — and a prepaid voucher that will cover all of your costs — by U.S. mail by the end of August. Then all you’ll have to do is call the internet service provider of your choice, give them your voucher code, and sign up for service.
