DOUGHERTY COUNTY, GA -
Dougherty County School officials say their outreach to Marine families is working. Representatives from all Dougherty County Schools attended a back to school forum at the Marine Corps Logistics Base in Albany last Thursday.
The system has a new policy allowing base parents to choose which schools they want their children to attend.
This comes after controversy over whether MCLB children would be allowed in Worth County Schools.
The interim superintendent Dr. David C. Mosely says since that forum at least ten families have enrolled their kids in Dougherty County schools and he hopes that number will continue to grow.
“I'm hoping that we're going to get a lot of their youngsters, and I want them to be in a school that they are pleased with, and I think we can provide that,” said Mosely.
The first day of classes for Dougherty County Schools is August 5th.
