State Administrative Law Judge Joe Webster ruled that Macon County Schools can start classes on August 4, as planned.
As I described in a previous Locker Room post, the State Board of Education granted Macon County Schools a waiver to begin classes before August 25, the statutory school start date. The Save Our Summers (SOS) folks argued that the statute did not grant the State Board of Education the authority to grant a waiver. Attorneys representing SOS asked the courts to issue an injunction. Today, the courts denied their request.
