Albany -- Dougherty County parents got some advice Thursday night to help ease their children's transition into high school.

About 100 parents sat through a presentation about the new high school curriculum and graduation requirements.

Next year's freshmen will be the first class affected by the changes.

"Rather than having five choices for a diploma track they will only have one. There will also be major changes because all students will be required to take four years of math and four years of science, said Executive Director of Curriculum & Instruction, Dianne Daniels. 

School officials also explained what will be offered at the Magnet Centers of Excellence at Dougherty County High Schools.
