Georgia schools set for school closures, but it won’t be as long as it looks
On Saturday, Georgia high schools will close, but only for a few days, but not for the entire year.
Georgia Department of Education spokeswoman Michelle Williams said Friday that schools would reopen in the fall.
But that’s not quite the same as having students return to classes, Williams said.
In other words, schools would be open for the remainder of the academic year.
Williams said schools will not reopen until the Georgia Department’s Office of Financial Management has provided a comprehensive review of their finances.
Students in Georgia have been using the school-opening dates to make plans for the holidays, Williams noted.
Schools typically reopen the week after Thanksgiving, with most students in school on the first Monday in November.
The Georgia Department has not released any information about the impact on the student population, but Williams said that students have been planning ahead and making plans to be back in school by the time the holidays approach.
Students who are still enrolled in classes and need to take the SAT will not have to take them on Dec. 15, Williams added.
Williams emphasized that students are still able to attend school, even if they don’t take the exam, but that students must have their schedules and activities in order.
Students will not be able to participate in extracurricular activities, Williams acknowledged.
The Department of Public Instruction will offer information about enrollment and graduation requirements and offer guidance on what activities students can do at home, Williams emphasized.
The department will be working with local community leaders to help students and families prepare for the new academic year, Williams stressed.
“We want to make sure that we’re doing everything we can to help them be successful in their lives,” she said.
Students must take a course on financial literacy, Williams explained.
Williams also said that parents are responsible for making sure that students, including their families, understand that there will be financial aid available for their families.
Williams noted that parents can access the Georgia Parent’s Bill of Rights, which provides a legal remedy for parents to have access to financial aid and help with student financial support.
Williams acknowledged that there are concerns about some students having insufficient savings to cover the cost of attendance.
But Williams said parents should have the flexibility to determine when it is appropriate for them to receive aid and how much they should be willing to contribute.
Williams urged parents to be aware of financial issues and to help their children with those financial issues.
Williams encouraged parents to help educate their children and provide guidance to them, but said parents must understand the financial issues they might face.
“Our goal is to make it as easy as possible for parents and students to succeed,” she added.
The state Department of Labor and Industry has released a list of school closures throughout Georgia.
The list includes a list that includes schools in the city of Atlanta, a small town in northern Georgia, a school in a remote area of rural Georgia, and several school districts in southern Georgia.
More than 150 schools will be closed.
The school district in northern Fulton County, which includes the city and county, has announced that it will close its schools in February.
Schools in the state’s largest city, Athens, will close in February, and the city’s school district, in the southeastern part of the state, is also expected to close in early March.
Schools are expected to be open in early February in more than 1,300 districts across the state.
The schools that will be closing include a few in the urban areas and in rural areas.
But some of the closures will be in the cities of Atlanta and Athens, as well as a small number in the central and southern part of Georgia.
Schools will also be closed in some smaller cities, including Athens, Rockingham, and Valdosta.
In some parts of Georgia, such as in the south and the north, the closure will be delayed for a month.
In the south, schools will have to close until the end of January, while in the north the closure is set to take place in mid-January.
The city of Savannah will also close schools, but will open in late January.
