School Board meets virtually tonight
by Robin Kemp
Students at Kendrick Middle School will be on virtual learning until at least August 30 due to COVID-19.
According to a Clayton County Public School spokesperson, students can pick up breakfast and lunch meals at their bus stops between 9:30 a.m. and 11:30 a.m., just like last year.
Last week, at least 158 students and staff systemwide had tested positive for COVID-19.
At 5:30 p.m., the Board of Education will hold the final public hearing on the proposed FY 2022 millage rate. The board wants to keep the same 20-mil rate in place, which if fair market property values stay where they are or go higher, would effectively mean a tax increase for most homeowners. The hearing will be followed by a called meeting at 6 p.m. to discuss a “time sensitive” transportation matter and to vote on the millage rate.
The meetings will be held virtually. Members of the public can comment at https://bit.ly/2VXe58t.
