COLUMBUS, GA (WTVM) - Students and teachers weren't the only ones busy on the first day back to school.
The Muscogee County School Board had a lot of projects and student ratios to talk about Monday night.
They discussed how many assistant principals are assigned to each middle school and high school, because those with enrollment under 450 students don't get an assistant principal.
Muscogee County School Board members also debated the role of academic deans as instructors, and whether or not the ratio of principals to teachers is too large to have accurate teacher evaluations throughout the school year.
Projects they're looking at include: the demolition of Country Village Apartments to build a new Spencer High School; installing new roofing at Shaw High next summer; and a Jordan High School autism center that hasn't been approved yet.
