Columbus schools to receive new principals

COLUMBUS, GA (WTVM) - Changes in leadership are coming for several schools in our area.

Many schools are on the failing list in Georgia and that includes five local schools. Five of those schools are getting new principals.

Those schools are Baker Middle school, Lonnie Jackson Academy, Fox Elementary, MLK elementary and South Columbus Elementary.

They would be subject to state takeover, according to a proposal from Georgia Governor Nathan Deal.
