Groundbreaking Ceremony Set for New School In Milton

by Candy Waylock / Appen Newspapers

October 28, 2008 The public is invited to the groundbreaking ceremony on Nov. 5 at 1 p.m. for the new elementary school opening in August 2009 on Birmingham Highway in Milton.Although site work already has begun, the ceremony allows school system officials, civic leaders and community members to gather and celebrate its construction. The public is invited to view architectural designs and hear about the school's planned features. Visitors should wear comfortable shoes with low heels due to gravel and possibly some muddy areas on the construction site. In the event of inclement weather, the ceremony will be postponed until Nov. 13 at 1 p.m.Designed to house up to 850 students in kindergarten through fifth grade, the new school is part of the capital programs effort in the Fulton School System, all funded through the through the one-percent educational sales tax, SPLOST (Special Purpose Local Option Sales Tax).Redistricting meetings to determine attendance zones for the new elementary schools, as well as existing schools in the area impacted by the opening, begin this week. Final attendance zones will be approved by the school system in the spring.

Why isn't someone fighting this?


Julie and Alan have lost my support as they are letting us down. If something goes in and they dont fight it, heaven forbid!

Local school boards are autonomous in the decision and selection of school sites. Local councils and commissions don't vote to approve/deny schools.

You may not realize it but if you voted for SPLOST (mentioned in the article), you have essentially given your approval to fund this and other school construction projects. With the funding, the local school board has the complete authority to place schools where they are most needed.

If you are unhappy with this situation you should organize an effort to contact your local school board, House Representatives and State Senators with your ideas/proposals for reform.

You dont get it. Julie fights everything, then shows up at groundbreaking and ribbon cutting time to smile.

Alan just does what she says.

Expected comeback.

Also noted is the bias shown by these same bloggers toward the council majority. So, this is their following...
