Lincoln County Appeals for Lateral Transfer to Region 8

December 16, 2011

Lincoln County has filed a lateral transfer request with the GHSA to move from Region 7-A to 8-A subregion B for the next two years. Appeals will be heard on Monday, December 19.

Region 8-A Subregion B currently has these schools assigned: Athens Academy, Athens Christian, George Walton Academy, Hebron Christian, Prince Ave Christian, and Providence Christian.

Region 8-A Subregion A currently has these schools assigned: Commerce, Lakeview Academy, Pinecrest Academy, Rabun Gap, Tallulah Falls, Towns County, and Woody Gap. Pinecrest has asked to move from Region 8-A to Region 6-A.

First Presbyterian Day School in Macon has requested to move from Region 7-A to 4-A.

Speculation is that Lincoln County does not plan to withdraw from the GHSA, as many other Class A public schools are considering doing.
