Dothan City Schools To Hold Trial Virtual Day for Dothan Preparatory Academy and Dothan High School Students

 
DOTHAN, Ala. – In light of the statewide increase of staffing issues, coupled with existing concerns regarding the COVID-19 pandemic and the upcoming influenza season, Dothan City Schools (DCS) plans to hold a Trial Virtual Day for all Dothan Preparatory Academy and Dothan High School students on Friday, October 30. This day will allow DCS an opportunity to proactively identify areas of improvement to better ensure the most effective learning environment for our students in case of forced closures in the future.
 
“In this unprecedented school year and the increasing possibilities of closures due to staffing shortages, COVID-19, and the possible impact from flu season, this is the best opportunity for Dothan City Schools to take a moment to evaluate our virtual instruction procedures and make sure that our staff members are prepared to meet our student’s needs in any situation,” said Dr. Dennis Coe, Acting Superintendent.
 
Parents of students at Dothan Preparatory Academy and Dothan High School should expect communications from their schools on expectations. Students and families are encouraged to utilize DCS’s Technology Help Desk at 334-793-1138. DCS’s Technology Help Desk provides assistance for students and families attending virtually using DCS provided devices.
 
Trial Virtual Day will not impact extracurricular activities. Students will return to campus on Monday, November 2.
