Valdosta - The Lowndes County school board wants to talk with parents about how the upcoming annexation process will affect their child's education.

The school board will host a public hearing Monday night at Lowndes High School to give parents a chance to voice their concerns on annexation.

The city of Valdosta plans on annexing several islands within the city that are considered county property right now. About 240 county students will be affected.

"I know a lot of questions have arisen out of the annexation and we just hope to answer those questions and put people's minds at ease about what's going to happen in the next few months regarding their children and their children's education," said Jennifer Hattaway.

The public hearing starts at 7:00 Monday night at Lowndes High School's lecture hall.
