More than 150 people crowded into the Dougherty County School System Board room Monday during a public hearing to discuss the possible closure of two schools and repurposing of another. Many could not get into the room and waited outside in the school administration building's lobby. The large turnout prompted authorities to move Thursday's noon hearing to the Governmental Building's city-county commission meeting room.
