Teachers in Laurel return back to school for 2012-2013 school year

LAUREL, MS (WDAM) - Laurel school teachers went back in the classroom, Wednesday.

Superintendent Chuck Benigno said the 2011-2012 school year was one of great accomplishments. He said four of the district's six schools improved by double digits last year on state testing.

Benigno said he's expecting the 2012-2013 year to be even better as they set out on a fantastic voyage for the next nine months. The district is starting a ninth grade school and bringing back its ROTC program.

Students will report to class Monday, August 6th.
