Calhoun, Gordon, other NW Ga. school systems get special education funding boost | The Calhoun Times

Calhoun City and Gordon County schools will get small funding boosts to help serve students with disabilities during the COVID-19 pandemic.

The State Board of Education allocated a total of $6 million to school districts statewide.
