Baldwin County preparing for 1st day of school
BALDWIN COUNTY, Ala. (WPMI) —
Baldwin County Schools are gearing up to welcome back students to a brand new school year Wednesday.
Teachers have been preparing their classrooms making sure everything is ready for the first day on Wednesday.
We also caught up with Baldwin county superintendent Eddie Tyler, asking him his thoughts about the year ahead, and some of the changes that are taking place throughout the county.
Some of those changes include the district's mission to rid the system of portables has been relentless, but so has been the continued influx of new families moving to Baldwin County.
Because of the influx new schools are in the works in Orange Beach, Foley and Elberta with more to come.
Borrowing money against the penny sales tax and making that tax permanent now gives the system $40 million a year to work with.
Which allows the system to partner with law enforcement to hire and train armed school resource officers for every school by the end of September.
