New GHSA alignment for Henry schools


By Monroe Roark
Times Correspondent 

  Next year Henry County will have 10 public schools and two private schools competing in the Georgia High School Association, and several of them will be in different classifications.

  The GHSA reorganizes its member schools’ regions and classifications every two years. The vote for 2014-2016 was scheduled for yesterday in Macon after final appeals, and none of the Henry schools were reported to have appealed the proposed new setup.

  Next year six of the county’s schools will be in Region 4-AAAAA: Dutchtown, Luella, Ola, Stockbridge, Union Grove and Woodland. This marks a step down from AAAAAA for Luella and a move up from AAAA for Dutchtown, Stockbridge and Woodland. Ola and Union Grove will be in the same region as this year. No county schools will be in the state’s highest classification during the next two years.

  The aforementioned schools make up Subregion B. Schools in Subregion A are Northgate, McIntosh, Starr’s Mill, Morrow, Mundy’s Mill, Drew and Forest Park.

  The county’s other four public schools will compete in Region 4-AAAA: Eagle’s Landing, Hampton, Henry County and Locust Grove. This is no change at all for Eagle’s Landing and Locust Grove, while Henry County is moving up from AAA. The fall of 2014 will mark the debut of Hampton High School.

Other schools in Region 4-AAAA are Eastside, Griffin, Jonesboro, Mt. Zion-Jonesboro, Riverdale, Spalding and Walnut Grove.

  Eagle’s Landing Christian Academy and Strong Rock Christian School will remain in Region 5-A, but under a slightly different configuration. That region has grown and is being divided into subregions. Both local schools will be in Subregion B.
