School Board To Hear About Zoning

Putnam County school officials say they've been getting calls from people concerned about a proposed zoning plan that will go into effect this fall and how it will impact their families. The Putnam County school board will be holding a specially called meetnig this afternoon at Avery Trace Middle School to allow parents and others to express their thoughts on the plan. Schools director Kathleen Airhart will also update the board on the progress being made toward the completion of a new elementary and middle school south of I-40, which is scheduled to open later this year ... and on how the school system will make the transition. No board action will be taken until their regular meeting on April 1st. The special meeting this evening begins at 6 pm in the auditorium of Avery Trace.
