Academic Success Center not dead yet

Whether or not this will be the final year for the Academic Success Center will not be determined until next week.

Tonight, the Muscogee County School Board voted to table the recommendation of Interim Superintendent John Phillips Jr. to re-prioritize the the 2009 Special Purpose Local Option Sales Tax project list.

The vote will come next Monday in a special called meeting in the Muscogee County Public Education Center.

Making the motion to postpone the vote was Norene Marvets who said "I just think there are too many questions the public wants answered."

Voting with Marvets were Mark Cantrell, James Walker, Naomi Buckner and Pat Hugley Green.

Voting to take the vote were John Wells, Cathy Williams, Rob Varner and Beth Harris.

The Academic Success Center is a program for about 200 students in grades 8-12 who are at least one year behind academically at their home school. Most of the programs are currently housed in the Daniel Center on Manchester Expressway.
