The State Department of Education released its failing schools list today as part of the School Accountability Act.
Montgomery County has eight failing public schools, that's according to a list released by the state today.
Schools were placed on the failing list if they were in the bottom 6% for at least three of the last six years. But State Superintendent of Education Tommy Bice says many of the schools are already showing signs of improvement.
Fourth of July celebrations kicked off at the Riverfront in Montgomery Wednesday night, but they didn’t have as much bang as expected.
