The state board of the Technical College System of Georgia voted yesterday  to reaffirm the system’s plan to merge the administrations of 13 of the state’s 33 state technical colleges

The 13 colleges will become six colleges on July 1, 2009.  Locally Coosa Valley Tech and Northwestern Tech will be merged into one college. 

The board’s vote follows a decision made during their November meeting to examine the merger concerns that were raised by a state legislator.
