By HENRY COUNTY SCHOOLS officials say it’s the most cost effective way to save on supplies for schools.

In an article published Friday in the county newsletter, the Henry County Board of Education says a one-time charge of $35.95 for school supplies for the 2019-2020 school year will save more than $5,000.

It says there will be a “new, one-year charge” on supplies in the 2019 school year for students who qualify.

For the next two years, it says the cost of a school supply is reduced to $29.99, $28.99 and $28,99, with the remaining charges reduced each year.

The Henry County Schools also says there are no other school supplies or equipment charges on the books.
