Schools across the state are deciding when and how to reopen schools in the fall. The state Department of Education set out several options for systems to consider, including in-person learning, virtual learning and blended plans, and said all parents have the option to enroll their children in a virtual learning program.

Here is where Birmingham-area schools stand on planning for the start of school.

At the state level, Gov. Kay Ivey sent $70 million to the Alabama State Department of Education’s Education Health and Wellness Grant Program. She also allocated $100 million to the Education Remote Learning Devices Grant Program.
