Back to school with Gadsden City system

As far as “new” for back to school goes, athletics is the attention grabber for Gadsden City Schools.

Behind the high school, students will now find onsite facilities for baseball, softball, soccer and tennis — welcome additions that will mean students can participate in those sports on campus.

That’s important, Superintendent Tony Reddick said, but the school system’s primary focus remains building the best learning environment for students, and ensuring they are ready for the game that awaits all students after school days end, whether it’s college or a career.

So while the system will be putting those fields to good use, Reddick said they will look at scheduling for high school and middle school students to give them more academic time.

Students are required to have one physical education credit in four years, he said, but, “We have kids who get eight (PE) credits.”
