On March 9th, 2021 at 5:30 PM the Walton Board of Education convened at the Board of Education office for a monthly meeting.
The board mentioned success in providing both in-person and remote learning, noting they were one of two schools in a “very wide area/range” to do so.
Moving on to the Superintendent’s report, the superintendent recognized local students’ involvement and success in extracurricular activities, ranging from various students’ accomplishments in local sports, to recognition of local high schools as AP Honor schools, to Young Georgia authors from every grade.
The board also made note of a fundraising effort which reached $134,000. The money will be used to help students and citizens of Walton County.
The board also mentioned teachers are receiving the COVID-19 vaccine. The first doses were already being administered and all staff were expected to have the first dose administered in five days. The second dose was to be administered after Spring Break.
The council took a small break before continuing. As a result of a scheduling conflict, Walton Tomorrow was unable to continue attending the meeting. We recommend readers to refer to the respective Meeting Minutes and Agenda for further details.
