Times and places of additional public hearing on this tax increase are at 514 Glover Street, Marietta, Georgia in the Board Room on July 20, 2016 at 8:30 AM.

So the MLT think tank of CCSD media specialists, which is led by LME Supervisor Holly Frilot, analyzed data from last year’s summer reading program and brainstormed ways to improve the experience for both students and parents.
