Overview & Plan

The Alabama State Department of Education (ALSDE) released thePlan graphic "Roadmap to Reopening Schools" on June 26. Although the document provides a framework for planning our school year in light of the current COVID-19 pandemic, the majority of the decision-making, planning, and implementation process for school systems is the responsibility of local boards of education based upon recommendations of superintendents. The decisions of the Pelham City Schools' Board of Education and the superintendent will be based on guidance from the Alabama Department of Public Health (ADPH), the ALSDE, and other appropriate sources. Future decisions about school day operations and instruction delivery may also be impacted by directives from the governor.

Planning for re-opening schools during the pandemic brings many issues to light, some of which are difficult to find consensus. Our plan is a guiding document that will continue to evolve and change as needed. We are committed to listening and being flexible. We will "press on" and keep moving forward as we face challenges, implement solutions, and focus on how we will continue to Inspire, Empower and Achieve in a school year that will be like no other.

We ask that you review the information we've prepared in detail so that you can make educational decisions that are best for your family.
