Information from the Dougherty County School System-
This year presents special challenges for Back-To-School in the Dougherty County School System.
This spring the Board of Education approved a School Closure and Consolidation Plan that made necessary the rezoning of all of our existing school zones.
This provided an opportunity for the system to save millions of dollars that will allow us to operate more efficiently and allocate more resources directly to student instruction.
Parents need to be made aware of some critical events and dates to assure a smooth start to the 2013-14 school year.
