    If the hopes of Henry County Public Schools officials hold merit, the winds of change could bring a boost to the district’s CATS scores.

    Gains in portfolio scores at Henry County Middle School and Henry County High School, and gains in math scores at the middle school, gave Superintendent Tim Abrams hope.

    “I’m very excited about the future for both of those schools,” he said, adding that the 2008-2009 school year brings increased expectations for all students.
