Etowah County Schools provide a rigorous, relevant education in a safe, student-centered environment that produces college and career ready graduates who contribute responsibly in a global community.

Welcome to Etowah County Schools


The Etowah County Schools have been and are currently monitoring the flu season as well as absenteeism and diagnosed incidents. We have also been in contact with medical experts to ask for and receive medical information and guidance. To make an informed decision, we have contacted the Alabama Department of Public Health as well as other medical professionals. At this time, The Alabama Department of Public Health does not recommend closing school. The Alabama Department of Public Health suggests that traditional standard personal protection and sanitizing methods be continued as normal.
This being said, we have been and will continue to monitor the information we receive related to the flu virus and will be sensitive to the information we receive.

Dr Alan Cosby

As the Superintendent, I invite you to explore our site to learn about the numerous opportunities and services we provide to over 8500 students learning and growing in Etowah County Schools. I encourage you to become involved in your child’s education - both inside and outside of the classroom. Your involvement will help your sons and daughters be more successful in all that they do.

Educators play a critical role of teaching knowledge and skills, but children’s attitudes toward school and their habits of studying, reading and learning, are largely developed at home. Our children need all of our support to reach their potential as great thinkers, innovators, and leaders. The commitment we make now will benefit our state and country as they become citizens of the world, competing, and collaborating in an ever-changing global environment.

There are many ways to be involved with your child’s education. This includes not only establishing routine homework habits, but also making time to get to know your child’s teachers, administrators, and other staff members at his or her school. Ask how you can become involved in your child’s educational experience.

We are dedicated to serving our students. Please join me in preparing our children to become successful citizens!


Alan Cosby, Ed.D.
