(Cleveland)- The Georgia High School Association announced Thursday that they will begin allowing workouts and training with restrictions by its member schools in an effort to begin preparation for a possible return to sporting events in the fall. The organization made its recommendation during its board of trustees meeting.

The board agreed to push it out a week to June 8 which will allow the state’s more than 400 schools more time to prepare before they bring back the student-athletes to begin conditioning.

Thursday night the White County Board of Education talked about that and approved spending $4,000 to do repairs to the high school football field.  The money will be used to repair high worn areas on the field.  The board agreed on this option rather than doing a complete reconditioning of the field which would have cost $18,000. 

The board of education also approved the following personnel items at the end of the meeting:

    • Retirement:

      • Woodrow “Jody” Davis – FT Bus Driver – eff EO SY20
