County schools open smoothly
Classes also began for the Cullman County Board of Education, with several new principals taking charge. New Cold Springs principal Tim Burleson, who had previously served as an assistant principal, said the first day went well.
Burleson noted it was an interesting transition officially taking over the top spot at the school on Monday.
“This is a little bit broader, whereas as assistant principal you were focused more on discipline,” he said. “This is a much more broad type of job, with different roles.”
Superintendent Billy Coleman visited several schools on Monday, and said the children seemed excited to be back on campus.
“Everything looked like it was going very smoothly and there was a great spirit at every school I stopped by,” Coleman said. “It was a great day. Preliminary indicators also show enrollment is looking up, so we’re really excited about that, as well.”
