I believe the Athens City School System embraces the responsibility of providing our city with its future leaders. It is within our Athens City Schools that students learn the skills needed to continue their education, enter the workforce, and become productive citizens.

 The Alabama Reading Initiative (ARI) is a statewide K-12 initiative committed to supporting the development

of high-quality instruction that will prepare all students with the literacy skills needed to meet or exceed

grade level standards.  The goal of the ARI is to significantly improve reading instruction and ultimately

achieve 100% literacy among public school students.
