Fairhope Independent School District?

A group of fed-up parents sent a letter to Fairhope Mayor Tim Kant and the city council, asking them to conduct a feasibility study on breaking away from the Baldwin County Board of Education and forming their own, independent school district. The group says their worried about the county school district’s 56 million dollar budget shortfall.

Baldwin school board member Bob Callahan said Monday that it would be a mistake to compare the situation in Gulf Shores and Orange Beach to that in Fairhope.

In recent years, Callahan has encouraged the Fairhope council to create a tax that would be applied to Fairhope schools alone.
