15 Bibb schools still without power; decision on classes coming later

As of 2 p.m. today, 15 Bibb County public schools were still without power from Sunday's storm damage.

Superintendent Sharon Patterson will meet with principals at 4 p.m. today to decide which schools will reopen for students Wednesday, and finalize plans for staff.

High school seniors need to resume End of Course and Advanced Placement testing to resume graduation ceremonies May 23 and 24.

Those elementary and middle school students who need to attend summer school need to be located and notified, Patterson said.

"For high school seniors it's extremely impactful," Patterson said. "We want to continue the student success as this school year closes and planning for next school year opens."

Schools without power currently are: Ballard-Hudson Middle, Ingram-Pye, Bloomfield Middle, Barden, Burghard, Rice, Westside High, Taylor, Weaver Middle, Morgan, Union, Renaissance, Southwest, Butler Early Childhood Center and Neel Academy.
