Columbia students prepare to go back to school

Aug 19, 2013

Watch the show and join the conversation on the Intersection website.

It’s that time of year again, when students across Columbia sharpen their pencils, pack their book bags, and prepare for the start of yet another school year. Tuesday is the first full day of classes for CPS, and it marks the start of a number of changes for the district, including new school start times, new school bus routes, and a new comprehensive high school.

This week on Intersection, we’ll explore some of the changes this year, and get a preview of what's to come.
