State Representative Jesse Petrea has introduced House Bill 29, a bill to amend the law passed last year that will enable the registered voters of Skidaway Island to vote concerning whether or not they want to become the City of Skidaway Island. All of the other five House members from Chatham County signed the legislation as co-sponsors, making it a bi-partisan bill.

College entrance exams can be a daunting task for many teens. To help our students best prepare, The Landings Association is pleased to announce practice SAT and ACT testing in 2019.

Sylvan Learning Center will proctor the practice tests to help high school students know what to expect on test day. An authentic, (previously administered by College Board) test will be used, but these scores will not be considered official or eligible for college entrance.
