ALBANY, GA (WALB) –  Department of Education inspectors are in Mitchell County to make sure the county school system is following the Individuals with Disabilities Education Act.

In 2008, Mitchell County Schools failed to meet the complex and extensive requirements set out by the IDEA. Because of that, the state was required to monitor the school system.

Inspectors have been in schools this week to make sure the system is doing what they're required to do.

The system received a letter in December verifying they had corrected the issue, but the state it still checking to make sure the system continues to comply.
