FROMPAPAR: To say the 2020-21 school year was challenging for students, teachers, parents and administrators would be the understatement of the year.

Our annual Public Education Edition (see Page 12) gives you updates on how our districts performed and what they are expecting for the 2021-22 school year. Papar Faircloth, GENERALMANAGER
