McDONOUGH — The Georgia High School Association adjustment in the reclassification plan has been released leaving Henry and Clayton County schools on the move.

Much like two years ago, the GHSA has reclassified schools based on enrollment and six local high schools — McDonough High, Riverdale High, Mount Zion High, Drew High, Forest Park High, Mundy’s Mill — will be affected.

Although schools have a chance to appeal their classification and have until Monday, Nov. 11 to submit their appeal to the GHSA office, six schools are moving. McDonough High is the only program from Henry County to be affected.

As it stands, McDonough High will move down from Class AAAA to Class AAA. Regions have yet to be decided as the GHSA is awaiting appeals.

Moving in Clayton County are five schools that are all moving out of Class AAAAAA. Mount Zion High, Drew High, Forest Park High, Mundy’s Mill will move into Class AAAAA.

Riverdale moves from Class AAAAAA to AAAA for the 2020-2021 year according to the Student Reclassification Count.

The changes will begin next year for the 2020-2021 school year and will have a mid-classification adjustment in 2022. The earliest time in which the GHSA will reclass schools.
