ALBANY, GA (WALB) -

With the new school consolidation plan set to take place in August, the Dougherty Co. School System is making sure students are prepared for the upcoming year.

On, Wednesday, June 28, 2017, the Dougherty Co. School Board heard from Associate Superintendent Kenneth Dyer.

Dyer said the school system recently established a task force to facilitate the logistics of the consolidation.

Letters were sent out to impacted students informing them of the change.

The school system will also host centralized registration at Albany High School the week before school to make sure that students are ready to go.

“There’s been a lot of anxiety and questions about what’s going to happen and how it’s going to go with the school consolidation. We want to make sure that we take care of the concerns by providing as much information prior to the beginning of school. The most critical thing is that we’re ready on the first day,” Dyer said.

During Wednesday’s meeting, the school board also approved the 2017-2018 school budget.

The $128 million dollar budget includes a 2.1% salary increase for teachers and other employees.
