State Launches Hurricane Preparedness Website

 Media Contact  - GaDOE Communications Office, , (404) 463-1487  GEORGIA HURRICANE PREPAREDNESS WEBSITE:       September 4, 2008  -- With hurricane season upon us in full force, the Georgia Department of Education has launched a Hurricane Preparedness website for Georgia's schools.    The website contains information and links that will be helpful to schools as they prepare for the possibility of severe weather and the impact it could have on schools.    "As a state, we must be prepared for the impact that severe weather, like hurricanes, can have on our schools and school systems," said State Superintendent of Schools Kathy Cox. "This website will serve as a clearinghouse of information should schools have to cancel classes, take emergency safety precautions or enroll students evacuated from other areas of the state or the country."    The Hurricane Preparedness website will be updated as necessary and will remain live throughout the school year.
