    Dothan City Schools Allocates Funding for School Supplies for All K-12 Students for the 2021-2022 School Year.

    All Dothan City Schools will provide school supplies for students during the 2021-2022 school year.

    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. Funding will cover the necessary school supplies for the entire school year.

    “Dothan City Schools are committed to providing excellent services to our customers...our students,” says Dr. Dennis Coe, Superintendent of Dothan City Schools. “Our commitment includes utilizing the extra federal funds to provide both an educational benefit for our students and a financial benefit for our families.”

    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.

  • Vaccines According to the Alabama Department of Public Health, from newborns to college, you can help protect your children from 16 serious diseases by getting them vaccinated. Make sure your kids get any needed vaccines before the back-to-school rush!

    As a parent, making sure your children are vaccinated on time is an important step toward ensuring their long-term health. Vaccination also helps protect the health of classmates, friends, relatives, and others in the community.

    By following the CDC’s recommended immunization schedule for your children, you help protect them from disease outbreaks.

    See the ADPH Back-to-School flyer.
