Low income students can receive help with internet service

Internet voucher art 8-25-2020
From Staff Reports
Alabama Gov. Kay Ivey has committed $100 million in Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security (CARES) Act funding to deliver free internet access to eligible K-12 students in their homes this fall. 
The State of Alabama is using the funds to purchase internet service for low-income households with K-12 students so students can participate in distance learning. This service is being administered through the Alabama Broadband Connectivity for Students Program.
Students in Alabama that are enrolled in the National School Lunch Program through their school are automatically eligible for the Alabama Broadband Connectivity for Students Program. Families will receive a letter after Aug. 24, which will serve as a prepaid voucher from the Alabama Broadband Connectivity for Students Program and covers the cost of equipment, installation, and high-speed internet service through Dec. 30, 2020. 
The voucher can be used once, with one internet service provider, to sign up for service for the duration of the program. Enrolled households will not receive any bills and will not be charged any additional fees by the internet service provider.
If the address for your student has changed, please contact you school to update the address for the National School Lunch Program.
The voucher is intended for students who are eligible for the National School Lunch Program. By using the voucher, you will be confirming that you meet the income requirements of the National School Lunch Program, which is limited to households earning $48,470 or less for a family of four. Please do not use the voucher if your household is not income eligible for the National School Lunch Program. Your attention to this will help ensure that households that need help connecting will receive it.

Eighth grade:  

Allen chosen as TMS principal

By Barry H. Hendrix

Ashley Allen has been chosen as the new principal of Thomasville Middle School.
The Thomasville City Board of Education approved the hiring April 28 in a meeting in the Thomasville High School Library.
He has served in the last two school years as assistant principal at THS.
“My reaction to being chosen as the next principal of the Thomasville Middle School can’t be summed up with just one word,” Allen said. “I’m elated and very excited about being the new principal of the middle school and being so at such a great time. Yes, we are dealing with unprecedented and unpredictable times, but we, as Thomasvillians, can be excited about the reopening of our beloved middle school.
“I hope to bring a new style of strong, consistent, compassionate and creative approach to leadership. I plan to be an effective leader by changing the “I” statements into “WE” statements. I plan to initiate this by collaborating with community stakeholders, teachers, parents and students to ensure that “WE” are all a part of this wonderful opportunity to make our Thomasville Middle School one of the best learning environments in the state of Alabama.
“I can’t express how I have enjoyed serving as your assistant principal and athletic director at the high school for the last two years,” Allen said. “The teachers, students, parents and the community as a whole, have been very supportive and respectful during this journey. I pray that our relationships continue to build and become even stronger as we strive to remain on one accord to do the best for our children of this community.
“I was a child of this community, and I hope that my deeply rooted history in Thomasville can help us come together to build a united front against the world’s distractions and other adversaries that attack the educational process. In my opinion, this is the only way that “WE” can protect and provide our students with the tools needed to be successful.
“It is my prayer that everyone stays safe and takes care of each other during these trying times,” he said. “Patience will be the key, and I can’t wait to join you, the great community of Thomasville, as “WE” move forward to greater things to come for our school system.”
Allen was raised by grandparents Henry and Esmeraldo Smiley. His father, Reginald Allen, was born and raised in Thomasville and currently resides in Tampa, Fla.
A graduate of THS, he comes from a family of educators. His late mother, Coilet Smiley, was an educator, and his grandmother Esmeraldo was an educator at Clarke County High School for 32 years.
His grandfather, Henry Smiley, was a former head of the Thomasville school board, a coach, and principal at Coffeeville High School. He retired from the McMillian Blodel paper mill in Yellow Bluff.
Alberta (Smiley) Dixon, the current Thomasville City Mayor Pro-Tem and a former educator, is Allen’s grand-aunt. Allen is the cousin of Charles Allen, a long time member of the Thomasville City Council.
Allen and his wife, Bridgett, have a daughter, Raven-Rose Coilet Allen, age 4. Bridgett Allen works in human resources at GD Copper.
