Provides Rainsville City School District


DeKalb County, AL. (WHNT) – A new school system could be coming to a town in DeKalb County.

The city of Rainsville plans to build its own school system as DeKalb County continues to grow.

Talk of a Rainsville city school system isn’t new, but the idea has resurfaced recently as the county has experienced tremendous growth.

Rainsville’s population is now more than 5,500, but students who live there attend schools in the DeKalb County School District, according to Rainsville Mayor Roger Lingerfelt.

Lingerfelt said the city needs money to have a municipal school.

“One thing, the seed money should be about three million dollars, between two and a half to three million dollars,” he said. “These are start-up costs to help get you through the first year. It doesn’t depend on the city.
