ALABAMA TO REOPEN ALL SCHOOLS FOR IN-PERSON TEACHING IN FALL

Back To School

MONTGOMERY, Ala. (AP) – The state school superintendent says all Alabama schools will reopen for traditional classes this fall.

But they’ll also offer options for virtual learning for children whose parents who aren’t comfortable sending them back because of the coronavirus pandemic.

Superintendent Eric Mackey announced plans for restarting the educational system, but he warned at a Friday news conference that the road map could change based on the spread of the virus.

Traditional schooling shut down in March and many districts switched to online or virtual learning.

Mackey says a survey showed about 15% of parents still aren’t comfortable sending their children back to school.
