Schools get ready for BRAC

ATLANTA -- Georgia's schools and education system have taken several steps to prepare for the upcoming round of Base Realignment and Closure, Superintendent Kathy Cox said Thursday.

Speaking at a national conference in Atlanta that focused on the impact of BRAC on schools and students, Ms. Cox drew applause several times when describing what the state has done to prepare for the influx of thousands of students in the next six years. Ms. Cox was part of a panel discussion Thursday afternoon.

"We're going to be a gainer, and we're pleased about that in Georgia," Ms. Cox said. But she pointed out there is still work to be done.

"We're going to have about a dozen districts out there that are going to need a lot of mobile classrooms," she said.

As she assumed the superintendent's office in 2003, Ms. Cox said, state leaders were beginning to focus on BRAC. But the state Department of Education hadn't done much for military families in the first place, she added.
