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.
Students zoned for Cedar Park Elementary will transition to
Edgewood Elementary beginning fall 2019. The Selma City Schools Transition Team
is in the process of creating a transition plan for all teachers and staff at
Byrd FCELC and Cedar Park Elementary. It is our goal to have this plan
Selma City Schools will continue to offer our premiere First
Class Early Learning program. The location will be announced over the next few
weeks. Pre-K registration for the
2019-2020 school year has begun. We encourage families interested in our Pre-K
program to begin registering today.
There will be a page on our website that will serve as the hub of information about the school closing process. More detailed information will be added over the next few weeks, intended 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.
