School District News

The Clarke County Board of Education has approved, in concept, a plan to create individual attendance areas for each of the school district's elementary schools. The proposal is designed to help the school district better manage rising transportation costs, balance enrollment at elementary schools, and provide more certainty to families in the enrollment process. The school district will open a new elementary school under construction on Danielsville Road at the beginning of the 2009-2010 school year. Tentative plans include opening two additional elementary schools, possibly as early as the 2011-2012 school year. Please go to the following website for more detailed information:
