Dougherty Co. school officials preparing for first day of school

Posted: Updated:

Dougherty County school officials are making final preparations for Monday's first day of school.

They say transportation plans are in place, but parents should contact their child's school if there is confusion.  Many students were rezoned after the county closed three schools.

Officials will track enrollment for the first ten days to make sure there is no overcrowding and determine whether more teachers are needed. The interim superintendent says he's setting a high standard for all school employees.

"We want performance, I want to see test scores improve the right way, I want to see our children have good learning opportunities by being exposed to quality teachers, I want good leaders at the school level to lead our staff," Dr. David Mosely, interim superintendent.

School officials also want parents to be more involved in their child's reading and school activities.
