Dr. Jeffrey Wilson, the new Superintendent of Floyd County Schools, wants to let local residents know that yes, there are talks of school consolidation on the table. But he expects the discussion to continue for awhile; no decisions will be made on this matter any time soon.
The conversation about school consolidation has been sparked by a decline in the population. It was a hot topic at the August meeting of the FCS Board of Education earlier this week.
The system already plans to close McHenry Primary at the end of this school year, due to declining enrollment.
This marks Dr. Wilson’s first year as the Superintendent of the Floyd County School system. He assumed the post on July 1st upon the retirement of John Jackson. Wilson served as the Superintendent of the White County Schools in Cleveland, Georgia prior to coming to Rome.
