Steve Montgomery, West Point School District superintendent, gave a briefing Monday to the Bright Horizons/Partners in Education about goals the district is meeting and expectations for the district in the future.
From this year's budget cuts, Montgomery said other than Fifth Street Elementary losing its choral teacher, the district has not had to let go of any more teachers or programs in the schools. He said one of the main things that was saved was the arts program, which he is excited about, and encouraged partners to continue to support arts in the schools.
After almost five years of planning for streets in the West Point city limits to be repaired, work finally began Wednesday at Lone Oak Park, just one of several streets to be repaired by Falcon Contracting over the next few weeks.

Brookhaven quarterback Duwone Harris took matters into his own hands last Friday night, as he and the Panthers defeated then undefeated West Jones to win the South 5A championship game.
Harris accounted for 363 yards of offense between his scrambles and perhaps his most effective throwing game of the season. The swift senior will likely be Brookhavenâ€™s top weapon in Saturday nightâ€™s state championship match against the West Point Green Wave.
