The Columbia County school system will be hiring more teachers for the next school year.  The board gave final approval Tuesday to hiring at least 48 teachers to accommodate growth in the school system.

Board member Mike Sleeper says hiring more teachers will also help reduce class sizes.

Adding teachers will be a gradual process as money becomes available.  The first to be hired will be for first, fourth and fifth grades.
