Five HCS Schools Selected as Official AL Bicentennial Schools
Governor Ivey started the initiative last December as a way to get students and teachers from across the state to participate and learn about Alabama history on the 200th birthday of its statehood in 2019. Each school project has the goal of connecting students with their local communities while also learning about the many contributions made by Alabamians throughout history to improve our citizens and state. Many of the school proposals include such ideas as mentorships, community gardens, and oral history projects.
The Alabama Bicentennial Schools Initiative is presented in partnership by Alabama 200, the Alabama Department of Archives and History (ADAH), and the Alabama State Department of Education (ALSDE).
