School starts today for Atlanta, Fulton districts

While many metro Atlanta school districts have already returned to school, two of the state’s largest school systems start today.

Students in Atlanta Public Schools and Fulton County Schools go back to school today,  Aug. 12.

APS has about 52,000 students and Fulton County has more than 93,000. 

In the Atlanta districts, students are returning to four renovated school buildings and one new school, Tuskegee Airmen Global Academy. 

The Fulton school year is starting under the leadership of a new superintendent. Mike Looney became superintendent in June.
