Macon County School Makes State's Focus List

The Georgia Department of Education has released a list of 156 schools labeled "focus schools" under the new accountability system.

According to the Georgia Department of Education, focus schools are those with a graduation rate of less than sixty percent over the last two years or with large gaps between highest and lowest achieving subgroups of students.

Dooly, Macon Counties January Unemployment Rates

 Dooly, Macon Counties January Unemployment Rates

Dooly County's unemployment rate for January was 14.4 percent, the Georgia Department of Labor news release says.

Macon County's unemployment rate in January was 14.6 percent.

That's compared to metro Macon's 9.9 percent unemployment rate for January.

But that's still less than a year ago, at 10.5 percent.

Sam Hall with the Georgia Department of Labor says the increases should not be cause for concern because seasonal workers leaving temporary holiday jobs play a major factor in the variation.
