Albany -- As always, the first day of school came with a few problems that needed to be worked out.

Offices were crowded Tuesday morning as parents tried to make sure their students were ready to go for the new school year. Some students who rode the bus were dropped off at the wrong school and had to be re-routed.

Terrie James brought her two sons to Sherwood Acres Elementary only to be told they're now assigned to Live Oak Elementary. When they got there, they were told they're supposed to be at Sherwood.

"It's a little frustrating because I was just going to drop the boys off at Sherwood then get back dressed and go to work, and thank God, I didn't, because they would've just been sitting there," said James.  

 The Dougherty County system has a new policy this year Students will remain in the same school all year even if they move to another school zone.

If you have back to school problems that haven't been resolved, you can contact the Dougherty County school system at 431-1264.
