Dothan City Schools In-Person ReOpening Plan

  • We have created this plan to aid in navigating the reestablishment of our school where employees, students, and families feel safe and to reduce the impact of COVID-19 conditions upon returning to in-person instruction.  The guidelines referenced in this plan are based on guidance from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), the World Health Organization (WHO), the Alabama Governor's Office, and the Alabama State Department of Education (ALSDE). This plan may be modified to fit the requirements established by the local health department, the Alabama High School Athletic Association, or the Alabama Department of Public Health.
