Albertville City Schools to provide free school supplies to all district students

Students will pick up their grade-specific supplies at either orientation or the first day of school.

HUNTSVILLE, Ala. — Albertville City Schools will provide free school supplies to all of its students this year. 

The district says:

Students will pick up their grade-specific supplies at either orientation or the first day of school. Everything except a backpack will be provided, thanks to additional federal funding made possible by pandemic relief funds.

With the Back to School Sales Tax Holiday – July 16 – 18, 2021—approaching, Albertville City Schools understands many people are preparing for the back to school season.

“Our leaders understand the financial strain the pandemic placed on many of our students’ families. We are delighted to relieve part of this burden by purchasing school supplies for every student enrolled in Albertville City Schools,” said Dr. Boyd English, District Superintendent.

English continued,“ The decision to fund school supplies is just another example of The Albertville Advantage. It is an excellence mentality that represents the passion of an entire community invested in the development of the next generation. We are grateful for our community’s commitment to our school system, and we are looking forward to the start of a new year.”
