Re-entry Plans for 2020-2021
High School/Early College
Message from the Superintendent
Alexander County Schools is committed to educating and empowering every student to become a responsible and productive citizen. We believe it is our responsibility to provide a safe and healthy environment for students to learn. The COVID-19 pandemic has impacted our community and our school system; however, it has not changed our commitment to our students. Through the end of the 2019-2020 school year, we provided opportunities for students to continue learning remotely and have access to nutritious meals while doing our part to limit the spread of COVID-19.
We are in the planning phase of our Return to Learn for the 2020-2021 school year. This new, temporary website will serve as our primary location for the most up-to-date information about re-opening schools. Please continue to check our district site for on-going information, directories, and other useful information.
Let’s get ready to Return to Learn!

Superintendent Dr. Jennifer Hefner presented the first draft of the re-entry plan for Alexander County Schools (ACS). Dr. Hefner indicated that these plans could change based on metrics. “We have seven priority areas for the re-entry plan. Those areas are student health and needs, employee health and needs, operations, communications, instructional planning, issues of equity and excellence, and state and federal regulations and policies,” stated Dr. Hefner.
