ALBANY, GA (WALB) -

Dougherty County School leaders are reaching out to future high school students to help make sure they'll end up graduating.

Thursday night 8th graders and their parents gathered at all four high schools for freshman orientation.

This group at Monroe High heard from the school's principal, teachers, guidance counselors, and current seniors.

They stressed the importance of getting off to a good start in high school and knowing what's required of students.

"They are coming from middle school and so we need to let the parents and the students know all our expectations here at Monroe High school," said Audrey Davis, head counselor.

Dougherty County High Schools will start registering new students for fall classes after this school year concludes.
