Plan for Bleckley Online School moving forward.

Though attendance at Tuesday night's meeting about a proposed virtual/online school  was poor likely due to people traveling for the Fourth of July, registration will remain open through the set July 18 deadline.  There must be 12 students not currently enrolled in school to proceed.  Parents wishing to register can download the form here.  Completed forms can be emailed (either take a photo or scanned) to Superintendent Steve Smith.  Call Smith, (478)934-2821 , extension 1100, or Bleckley County Success Academy Principal Denise Warren, (478)934-1685, for more information.
