ALACHUA COUNTY, Fla. (WCJB) - Alachua County Public Schools Communications director Jackie Johnson sat down with TV20′s Alexus Goings about the changes happening in the upcoming school year.

In addition to that, one new law that provides health care services to students will only be available if parents sign a form first.

Johnson said the forms should be filled out before the school year starts. Here’s the link.
