BIRMINGHAM — Birmingham City School (BCS) leaders announced Wednesday they are starting the fall school year with virtual instruction. BCS will implement its remote learning plan for the first nine weeks of the 2020-21 year.
Interim Superintendent Dr. Mark Sullivan said, because of complications created by COVID-19, instruction will start with virtual learning only.
Birmingham City School leaders said they did not want to rush into decisions. Therefore, they intend to wait to see what state and county health officials say about coronavirus risks moving forward. School is scheduled to begin on Aug. 24.
