COFFEE COUNTY (WDHN) — Coffee County school superintendent Kevin Killingsworth and the district office held an appreciation luncheon for area educators and staff Wednesday afternoon.
Since becoming superintendent a little over a year ago, the school district has grown by several hundred students.
The growth at New Brockton High School has resulted in the school board to allocate funds to build additional classrooms.
“We’ve had to hire additional teachers, additional bus drivers and we have new classrooms to go under construction and modules for the next school year,” Killingsworth said.
Besides New Brockton, student growth in the Coffee County School District is also taking place at Kinston and Zion Chapel. Both are K-12th grade educational facilities.
