Today in Levy County History: Williston Grammer School closes early - no funds

-A A +A
By Toni C. Collins, Levy County Historian

In April of 1929, a group called the Patrons of Williston Grammar School contacted Florida Gov. Doyle E. Carlton to lodge a complaint against the Levy County School Board.  At issue was the closing of the grammar school two months early, while the high school continued classes for the full eight-month term.
The Patrons argued that in 1927, they privately paid $4.00 per month for the two last months of school so the students could have a full eight-month term. The following year, they paid for one month so students could have an eight-month term.
