The Family Friendly Schools Act would align school hours to better match parents' work schedules.

TEXAS, Ga. — Public schools are usually slow to change and the coronavirus pandemic has helped spotlight that.

”What a really innovative, non-traditional piece of legislation that would really be a godsend to many of Premont’s families," Superintendent Steve VanMatre with Premont ISD said.
