Putnam Co. Schools add focus on life skills

Officials with Putnam County schools have been analyzing the number of graduates that go on to college, and while the numbers aren't bad, Putnam county schools want more students to seek higher education. This fall, Putnam county students will see a greater emphasis on work ethic and communication skills, and that'll count toward the students' grades. Academics will still have the greatest emphasis, but schools will be able to target life skills outside of that as well, like tardiness.
