Dougherty County school officials are continuing to do what they can to make the adjustment easier during two school closures and the re purposing of another.
The 4th of 9 school meetings will be held 6:30pm Monday night at Albany Middle School.
Sylvester Road Elementary and Dougherty Middle School will be closing and Magnolia Elementary's will be re-purposed for the upcoming school year.
Last week's meetings gave parents the opportunity to tour the school buildings and meet with teachers and staff.
This plan is expected to save 2 million dollars a year and 11million in SPLOST money for renovations needed at the schools on the closure list.
School board members debated the issue for several months and voted on the cost saving plan last month.
The first in these string of meetings began in Dougherty County last Monday night at Alice Coachman Elementary school.
The remaining school closure meetings:
Apr 29 Albany Middle
Apr 30 Radium Springs Middle
May 2 South side Middle
May 6 Jackson Heights
May 7 Turner Elementary
May 9 Radium Springs Elementary
