Message from Superintendent Dr. Cindy Gibson 6/9/20

To Parents/Families and LEAs

The Georgia Academy for the Blind staff are working to open school for the 2020-2021 school year as scheduled with students reporting to school in person!  That means the first day of school for students is Monday, August 3, 2020. The top priority for all of us is to open school safely. Although we are working hard to open school on time, we know we will need to be flexible given the current unfolding circumstances related to COVID-19. If the reopening date changes, the Georgia Academy for the Blind  staff will inform you as soon as possible. The school calendar for 2020-2021 is posted to this site. 

 We will provide plans for our Open House which is on Sunday, August 2, 2020, as we get closer to reopening and know the social distancing guidance in place at that time.

 I hope you are having a nice summer time and enjoying family events.  We will stay in touch. Email, text, or call if you have any concerns.





Cindy B. Gibson, Ed.D., T.V.I.
