Baldwin County Schools starts classes Monday
MOBILE, Ala. (WPMI) —
Students in Baldwin County are enjoying one last day of freedom before Baldwin County Public Schools go back Monday.
Teachers and administrators spent the summer greeting ready with some new changes to the curriculum.
Happening this year is a new emphasis on reading , in all grades at all levels, with the goal to bring back the "love of reading" and to teach students the value of comprehending, understanding what they read.
"Through this guided reading program student get to chose books of their choice and then you take small segments and gradually build your stamina in reading and eventually they get excited about reading." Eddie Tyler, Baldwin County Schools superintendent said.
The superintendent says the county will continue to build without an increase in taxes.
This school year five schools get new classrooms, new wings.
This is all part of the system's pay-as-you-go capital improvement plan.
