DOTHAN, Ala. (WDHN) — Tuesday morning, the city of Dothan, along with Houston County and Henry County Schools had their first day of school for the 2022-23 school year.

Students boarded the bus or jumped in a carpool line excited for the year.

Dothan is welcoming 90 new teachers across the system, and they say they’re excited to take on the upcoming school year.

DCS also encourages parents to get involved with their child’s school this year, and that each school has plenty of opportunities to do so:

“Each school offers opportunities for parental involvement,” DCS Superintendent, Dr. Dennis Coe said. “We want parents to encourage their students to be aware of what’s going on at school. And we want them to be aware of what’s going on at the district level. So just be involved in your child’s life and let them know that you care about them.”

Dr. Coe also says the biggest change this year for Dothan City Schools s is no change because they feel they’re headed in the right direction.
