Russell County Schools will not open on August 4th as originally scheduled. The new start date is one week later, August 11th.
Superintendent Michael Ford said although the contractors and management have done an excellent job in keeping the renovation project at RCHS on schedule, it has become evident that there needs to be a delay in the start of the 2014-2015 school year. Ford said the change in the start date of the school year is necessitated by vendor/supplier delays for equipment that is essential for the start of the new school year.
The new start date is August 11th for ALL Russell County Schools.
