Walton Co. School District Welcomes New Programming

By  | 

WALTON COUNTY-- For some, summer is coming to an end.

Starting Monday, students attending Walton County School District schools head back for the 2014-2015 year.

Superintendent of Schools Carlene Anderson says she is excited for this year, and is working to stay an A-plus district.

Anderson spoke to NewsChannel 7 about two new programs coming to schools this year.

Those include the Embry-Riddle Aeronautical Dual-Enrollment Program at Walton High School, and a Manufacturing Program which will be available at Freeport High School.

Anderson also spoke about how the district is looking for funding to remodel Walton Middle School, and the district has also acquired land in the south end of the county to build another school in the future.

"I am also really excited about the digital classroom grants that we have. Our students thrive, as you know, on digital and we are really excited, and to be able to help them and the teachers, that will be trained on and use the digital in their every day life for the Walton County School District," WCSD Carlene Anderson said.

Anderson says the district has a strong budget for the 2014-2015 school year, but that it is not finalized and will be complete by September.
