      DCSS wraps up rezoning meetings

      Parents and their children lined the cafeteria at Radium Springs Elementary School for the last Dougherty County rezoning meeting due to school closures.

      Principal Gail Griffin says the school is not losing any students but instead gaining 15-20% more with the new zones, but isn't worried because the school has seen that number of students before.

      Griffin says they've had to hire more teachers and paraprofessionals but she believes her staff is capable of handling the fuller hallways and says parents shouldn't worry about their children having to change schools.

      Radium Springs Elementary has a large percentage of gifted students and Griffin says the new kids will be surrounded by gifted individuals and will be a nice complement to those already at the school.
