GREENE STUDENTS TO GET EARLY START ON COLLEGE CAREER
Students at Greene Central High School now have an opportunity to finish high school early and get a head start on their college careers. Greene County Schools Superintendent Patrick Miller said the Greene County School Board voted unanimously in January to adopt a policy that would allow students to graduate high school in seven semesters instead of the traditional eight. Miller said Lenoir, Duplin, Wake and Hoke county schools, among others, already have the policy in place. "We were actually playing catch-up by having this policy put in place," he said. Miller said the policy will help traditional students, along with students who are on the alternative diploma program.
