School Closure Information and Updates

School Closure Information and Updates

 

 

 

On January 15, 2019, Selma City Schools Board of Education voted to close Cedar Park and Byrd First Class Early Learning Center at the end of the 2018-2019 school year. Selma City Schools recently created and began implementing a five-year strategic plan which, in short, included a goal of right sizing our school district for equitable distribution of resources. This page will serve as the hub of information about the school closing process. Information will be added as more becomes available. It is our intention to keep parents, students, and the community informed. Selma City Schools understands the impact of closing schools and aims to diligently communicate the process to all parents, teachers, staff, and students. Please see the updates below.
