ALBANY, GA (WALB) - Enrollment at Albany's smallest high school is down, but the board says Albany High plays an important role.

About 780 students are enrolled at Albany High this year. That's down about 30 students from last year, and about 500 fewer students than Westover.

But board members say studies indicate it's cost effective to keep four high schools in Dougherty County.

And plans for renovations are even set to begin next year at Albany High School.  

"Albany High School is developing a center of excellence in Law, multimedia and honors programs. The construction in 2009 that is set to be specifically for the Center of Excellence Center that will house those programs," said School Information Director R. D. Harter.

These construction plans are part of a 15 year plan to help develop the high schools in Dougherty County.

As of know there are no indications that those plans will be changed.
