Says the media release:  The Gordon County School System will implement “Passing the Pandemic: Helping Students Recover,” a project which will allow high school students to complete required courses they were unable to complete due to the pandemic. The grant will fund the teachers and materials needed for this extended learning opportunity, which aims to help more than 300 students receive the credits required for graduation.


Bartow County School System’s baccalaureate service will be held virtually this Friday, May 22, at 7 p.m., for graduating seniors at Adairsville, Cass, and Woodland high schools. Tabernacle Baptist Church will live-stream the event on Facebook and YouTube.
