QUITMAN COUNTY, Ga.(WTVM)-- After nearly 30 years together, Stewart and Quitman County students will no longer attend the same high school.

Back in 1978, Quitman and Stewart County High Schools consolidated into one school. That means most kids that live in Quitman County had to travel to Stewart County to get a high school diploma.

The new school will be a new addition to the existing elementary and middle school in Quitman County.

It will include about 8 to 11 new classrooms, a gym, and band room, which will cost the county about $4.5 million dollars. Despite the education budget in Georgia facing cuts this year and next year; the school board isn't worried about the cost. "We went to the citizens of Quitman County two years ago about a SPLOST. We got an overwhelming response by citizens to build a new high school wing," said Quitman Co. Superintendent William Burns.

The new school will not have a football team starting out, but they are planning to have basketball, baseball, track, and volleyball.

Construction on the new school should begin sometime next week and should be complete in time for the 2009 - 2010 school year.

They're expecting to start the year out with about 85 high school students.

Clay ponders charter School
A new charter school will
be the topic of discussion at
a Nov. 17 meeting at the old
gym in Fort Gaines.
Anyone from Quitman,
Stewart, Randolph, Early,
Calhoun and Clay counties
interested in learning more
about charter schools is
urged to attend.“The more
people who are interested
in seeing a charter school
beginning here the better
our chances of making it a
reality,” stated Garth Duke-
Barton, Pastor of Fort
Gaines United Methodist
Church.
Tim Pinson who helped
form the charter school in
Baconton, south of Albany,
will be at the meeting to
discuss how to start a charter
school.
A charter school is under
the local school board. It is
a public school and must
accept all local children
who ask to enter up to
school capacity. Tuition is
not charged. Teachers are
employees of the school
board and receive the same
minimum salary, health
and pension benefits other public school teachers.
The school is governed by
a board of parents who
keep the mandates of the
contract they drafted and
got approved by the county
school board and state
charter school board.
Most charter schools
require parental involvement
such as 20 hours of
work in the school a year
and attendance at
PTA/PTO meetings.
Failure of parents’ committment
is cause for
removal of a child from the
school.
The old gym is located on
Carroll Street next to the
health department one
block east of Washington
Street. To learn more visit

Quitman County will be one step closer to a new high school next week.
According to Quitman County Superintendent William Burns, the school board will open bids for the school’s planned construction project next Thursday.
“We hope we get some very good bids,” said Burns.
Burns said four construction companies have already expressed interest in the school’s construction and the superintendent hopes more will come forward by next week. He said the board will take a few days to consider the bids before choosing a company to construct the school.
The new high school will be located on the same campus as New Quitman Elementary School. The 16,000-square-foot building will include 11 classrooms and a vocational and science lab plus a 650-seat gymnasium, fine arts building and band room. The high school will also have its own parking area and a connecting 30-foot walkway to the New Quitman Elementary cafeteria, which the high school and elementary school will share.
The classrooms’ projected date of completion is July 15, 2009, with the gymnasium a short time later.
Burns said that though teachers have yet to be chosen for the new school, he encourages anyone interested to contact the Quitman County Board of Education.
“I think people are really, really excited about the new high school,” said Burns.“The transition will hopefully be smooth.”
Burns predicts the building project will cost approximately $4.4 million with funds coming from an approved $3.5 million bond,$700,000 school surplus and $1.5 million from the state of Georgia. Burns hopes the system will not have to use all of the $3.5 million available through the bond.
He said citizens of Quitman County are supportive of the new high school and many students are eager to attend. With the high school, the campus will serve grades K-12.
Burns said 85 students currently at Stewart-Quitman High School could attend the new Quitman high school plus 25-30 students attending schools elsewhere.
The school also plans to have extracurricular activities such as basketball, baseball, a band and possibly track

Ninth graders Javia Johnson and Tamonica Wilson weren’t just starting high school Monday.
The 14-year-old classmates were members of Quitman County High School’s first freshman class in approximately 30 years.
“It’s a different experience - being in high school,” said Javia, a Georgetown resident who is grateful he doesn’t have to make the daily commute to Stewart-Quitman High School in Lumpkin, Ga.
“I’m excited (about being a freshman),” Tamonica added. She especially excited about playing on Quitman County’s new basketball team - the Hornets.
Basketball, along with cheerleading and band, are among extracurricular activities that will be offered at the school.
Tenth grader Cassie Eleby says she’s looking forward to participating in all three. She attended Quitman Elementary/Middle School through the eighth grade and spent her freshman year at Stewart-Quitman High.

New team will begin playing this November
By Patrick Johnston
Published: May 28, 2009

June is still a few days away, but Quitman County basketball players are already looking forward to November.

Nov. 17 is the day to be exact. That’s when Quitman County High School plays Pacelli in its first game since the 1970s.

The school, which is opening this August, will have varsity basketball for both boys and girls. For three decades youth from Quitman and Stewart counties have played together as Stewart-Quitman High School.

Now Quitman County will have its own team with a mascot (the Hornets), school colors (maroon, Vegas gold and black) and a new gymnasium which will be constructed by the fall.

Quitman County’s opening game against Pacelli is a scrimmage and will not count toward the teams’ overall records. The first official game for QCHS is Nov. 24 at Baker County in Newton. The first home game, ironically, is Dec. 1 against Stewart County.

QCHS boys coach Jaymes Harlan says excitement is already building toward the season.

“This community loves basketball and supports the team wholeheartedly,” he said.
