DOUGHERTY CO., GA (WALB) -

The much anticipated first week of school in Dougherty County is now complete and school officials are saying it was a success. 

With the school system's recent realignment, there was some concern about the start of school. 

Hundreds of students switched zones, meaning they may have started at a new school and received a new bus route. 

School system spokesperson J.D. Sumner said there were some setbacks, but nothing major. 

Transportation was backed up for some time, but Sumner said that's typical for the first week.

Sumner said it's thanks to system wide leaders, teachers and administrators for their hard work in getting the word out about realignment changes.

It's also thanks to parents for their cooperation. 

"Really a lot of the credit goes to the parents because they were proactive to a large degree," explained Sumner. "They went and found out what zone they were in and went through the process of zoning registration and verification."

Sumner said he hopes the rest of the school year will go by smoothly as well.
