Twiggs County Comprehensive Middle-High School needs a new heating and cooling system, but to do that, the district needs to adjust its 2015-2016 school schedule.
In 2014, the board voted to build a new $1.6 million system. "It's very important that our students have the opportunity to be warm in the winter and cool in the summer," said Elgin Dixon, superintendent.
Dixon said construction should start in May and will last three and half months. He said students can't be at school when the work is being done, so the calendar might look different than in years past if the school board approves next Thursday.
"Our first day of school for the 2015/16 school year will be August 31st, is the proposed date," he added.
