Our hearts and prayers are with all people who have been affected by Hurricane Katrina. The Department of Education is ready to help in everyway it can.

The education of displaced children:

Children who have been evacuated from their homes and are being sheltered in Georgia are our responsibility. Should it become necessary, their education can and will continue in Georgias schools. We will work with local systems to make sure these students are enrolled and begin attending classes as quickly as possible. Also, we will work with our neighboring states to make sure the transition is as smooth as it can be.
