Lowndes County School System Attorney Warren Turner did clarify a bit of what would happen if consolidation passes:
If consolidation occurs, there is no such thing as the Valdosta City School System, from the date the Georgia Secretary of State approves it.Sam Allen joked:
Once they certify the election, there is no central office of the Valdosta City School System. There is a property located on William Street that is part of the Lowndes County School System….
The real question is where would the funds desginated for those facilities go, and can you even spend it? Tax Commissioner doesn’t know; Attorney General doesn’t know; and we don’t know.
CUEE, they probably know.Everybody thought that was pretty funny.
