FORT VALLEY -- Peach County schools policy for awarding class credits will change to match newly revised state rules, as the Peach County Board of Education approved the changes Tuesday. One of the biggest changes allows students to take the end-of-course test before a class, giving them a chance to test out of that class if they make a high score. Students can test out of three classes that way, officials said.
Also during the meeting, Fort Valley Mayor John Stumbo proposed a plan to renovate Peach County High Schools football fieldhouse. Stumbo presented a fundraising campaign, which he would lead, to garner $250,000 this winter for the renovations. The fieldhouse is aged and has sustained structural and water damage, he said. While a vote was not needed, all board members said they supported the plan.
