Talbot County schools getting makeover

TALBOT COUNTY, GA (WTVM) - Talbot County schools are getting a major makeover, and phase 1 is almost complete.

The school system recently received a grant from the state Department of Education to modernize their schools.

Phase 1 of the project is remodeling Central Elementary School, including new restrooms, new electrical, and new plumbing.

The superintendent says it's like getting a brand new school for a fraction of the cost.

Phase 2 of the project will be a new gymnasium, which will begin in a couple of weeks.

School officials say all the elementary, middle and high school will all be completely modernized by 2014.
