DOTHAN, Ala. (WTVY) - All Dothan City Schools will provide school supplies for students during the 2021-2022 school year.

DCS announced Wednesday that with federal COVID-19 relief funding, they will be able to provide all students in grades K-12 with school supplies for the 2021-2022 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.”

The funding does not cover school supplies for the pre-kindergarten programs at Head Start and the Dothan City Early Education Center.

There are also some school supplies not covered by the federal funding so DCS encourages groups wanting to help out to donate book bags or classroom cleaning supplies.
