TROY, Ala. (WSFA) - Troy City Schools will start the school year a few days later than planned.

Troy City Schools Board President Jonathan Cellon confirmed the school year will start on Aug. 24 instead of Aug. 20. He said the delay is to give teachers more time to prepare and get trained on the virtual learning program.

Cellon said the decision was made during a called board meeting Wednesday morning.
