AUGUSTA, GA -- The State School Superintendent is in Augusta today, paying a visit to a local school that's in some academic trouble.
Kathy Cox is meeting with teachers and the new principal at Tubman Middle School in an effort to help them turn things around.
There have been lots of problems at Tubman, including the school's failure to meet Adequate Yearly Progress for eight years in a row.
Sate Superintendent Cox's visit comes a little more than a week after new Principal Wayne Frazier took over.
If things do not improve soon, the state could end up running Tubman Middle.
