All modular classrooms will go away

November 30, 2004

Colquitt County - In three years, all modular classrooms rooms will disappear in Colquitt County.

A one center special purpose local option sales tax is expected to generate 40 million dollars by December 2008.

Eventually, all 14 Colquitt County schools will get some sort of improvement, like renovations, additions or a new building.

The goal is to have all modular classrooms eliminated by 2007. Superintendent Leonard McCoy says, "While modular classrooms have a place and are safe, they don't provide the same opportunity for the child that regular classrooms do."

Colquitt County has seen a steady growth in student population and expect more when Sanderson Farm families move to the area.
