DOTHAN, Ala. (WDHN) — Dothan City Schools is planning to hold a trial virtual day for its students in Dothan High School and Dothan Preparatory Academy.
On Oct. 30, the system will move students to remote instruction look at ways to improve its learning environment if any schools have to be closed due to COVID-19 and staffing issues.
“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.
The schools will send a message to parents on what to expect. Students and families can get help with using DCS devices by calling DCS’s Technology Help Desk at 334-793-1138.
Extracurricular activities will continue as normal. Students will return to campus the following Monday.
