Dear Milton Neighbors, Friends and Citizens
- I hope this finds you well and enjoying the beautiful weather and unfolding Spring views in Milton.This release provides a brief update on several topics including:
Board of Education discussions Thursday, March 19th
re: the BOE budget and options for planned high schools in North Fulton. The BOE is evaluating, and possibly voting, on whether to keep the new high school planned for Bethany and Cogburn on the current building schedule or push it out beyond the current SPLOST. If that were to occur, student projections show Milton High School far beyond capacity in the next few years. If you have an opinion on this topic, please scroll down for more details. You may email your opinions to the Fulton County Board of Education before this evening's BOE meeting.
Upcoming City of Milton meetings - see listing in the right margin.
