As of 3/8/2022 Garrett County Board of Education (GCBOE) has made a decision to move Southern's Auto Mechanic and Culinary programs from the high school to a "more central location" for both Northern and Southern. In August of 2021 Northern sadly lost it's Auto Mechanics teacher and they have been unable to replace him. The GCBOE solution to this problem is to move the program to a facility in Accident, MD. The problem with this is the location, for northern students it would be a 5 minute ride/ drive. For southern students though it would be 45 minutes ride/ drive causing a complete change to those students schedule that are taking these courses. Southern High students will only be able to take 3 courses each semester due to the travel time. This is not a central location, this is a northern location, and we the students of Southern High ask you to please help us persuade the Board to change its decision and to come up with a new way to make it fair for both Northern and Southern students. I am unable to speak for Northern students and I'm sorry that the board has not been fair to you, by not giving you a Culinary program and not replacing your auto mechanic teacher. I hope the board will be able to come up with a better solution to this problem the for both of us.
