Bengal Tech Academy for Global Studies – a project-based school-within-a-school – is scheduled to open at Bassett High School on Aug. 10, which is the first day for students in the 2016-17 school year.

Monica Hatchett, coordinator of family and community engagement for Henry County Public Schools, said construction is scheduled to begin on the afternoon of May 26, the last day of school for students for the 2015-16 school year.
