Governor Kay Ivey and the Alabama Department of Early Childhood Education announced on Monday that the state’s First Class Pre-K program will add 107 classrooms to 33 counties this fall. Among them: nearly 50 new classrooms in Tuscaloosa’s city and county school systems.

The Tuscaloosa County School system has announced changes to the dates and times of this year’s graduation ceremonies. It’s a move prompted by concerns raised by students and their families.

At long last, students at Sprayberry Learning Center have a new home, in the building which once housed Lloyd Wood Middle School. This week, an open house is planned, to give residents a closer look at the Lloyd Wood Education Center.

Shelton State Community College will partner with Tuscaloosa City Schools and Tuscaloosa County Schools to host a county-wide dual enrollment interest meeting at Tuscaloosa Career and Technology Academy (TCTA) this Tuesday, July 19 at 6:00 p.m. Students in grades 10-12 interested in earning academic and technical credit are invited to attend.

A decision has been made on who will fill the vacated District 5 seat on the Tuscaloosa County School Board. Engineer Charles Orr will serve as the representative until November, when he will run for a full term.

The District 5 seat was left vacant after Mark Nelson left to take a seat on the Tuscaloosa County Commission. That seat was vacated with the death of longtime Commissioner Bobby Miller in January.
