DOTHAN, Ala. – Through funding provided through ESSER II, federal COVID-19 relief funding, Dothan City Schools will provide all students Grades K-12 with school supplies during the 2021-2022 school year to relieve families of the financial burden that school supplies can bring.

School supplies will be provided to all DCS students within their base school at the beginning of the 2021-2022 school year. Organizations looking to donate school supplies for the upcoming school year are encouraged to donate book bags, classroom cleaning supplies, and other needed supplies not covered by ESSER funding. Funding does not cover school supplies for Pre-Kindergarten programs at Head Start and Dothan City Early Education Center.
