School systems sign agreement with MCLB

March 10, 2004

Dougherty County -- Moving from one school district to another is tough for military families, but it's about to get a little easier in south Georgia.

 Wednesday the Commanding officer of the Albany Marine Corps Logistics Base signed an agreement with three area school superintendents to ease transition difficulties.

Base School Liaison officer Gunnery Sgt. Richard Walker said "Some school districts are sometimes hesitant to agree to take that child, or address their needs, but these counties have pledged to help us."

Lee County School Superintendent Dr. Larry Walters said "We really do value the base. Our counselors, our teachers, our school administrators. Anything we can do to make their transition to their new home in Lee County as smooth as possible."

The school Superintendents in Dougherty, Lee, and Worth Counties agree to ease school transfer and credit issues faced by military families, as they make moves to defend our nation.
