Walton School Board To Hold Four Meetings Tuesday

The Board will start their afternoon of meetings with a workshop on school security. This is a closed meeting. The Sunshine Law allows for closed meetings when security issues are discussed as a way to prevent information that could lead to a security risk becoming public.


At 4:30pm the School board will hold a workshop to discuss the Legislative Priorities. This is a chance to come up with anything the Board wants to let the state legislators know about. Having the list now will allow for possible inclusion during the upcoming legislative hearings and session.


At 5pm the Board is to hold their regular meeting. And at 6pm or after the regular meeting, they will switch hats and become the Walton County Public Education Finance Authority. The meeting is to secure $30 Million in certificates of participation for financing the Walton Middle School Project.
