More School Furloughs Possible
Monday, 12 October 2009

October 12--  More Toombs County teacher furloughs are possible this school year, according to county School Superintendent Dr. Kendall Brantley.

He told the October meeting of the Toombs County school board the continued decline of state revenue collections may lead to more state funding cuts and cause more furloughs before the year is over.  Dr. Brantley says the county school system's cash reserve has been reduced by 50 percent and stood at $1.5 million at the end of the fiscal year.

The school board has a called meeting Thursday at six p.m. to confirm the county's new school property tax.  Although the millage rate will be the same as last year, homeowners will see a larger bill this year.  That's because the state legislature cancelled the Homeowner Tax Relief Grant causing counties and school board to bill taxpayers for the difference.
