The school year starts tomorrow and it’s an exciting year for Dawson County Schools. Construction will begin on the new College and Career Academy after September 1, with an expected completion date of August 2019. The third and final phase of the 1:1 initiative will be implemented at the high school, giving access to iPads to grades 10-12. And safety upgrades that were discussed during a March 8 school safety workshop and approved by the board of education in April have been put in place to make Dawson County schools a safer environment for all.
