Montgomery Schools Looking For Money
Tuesday, 18 January 2011

January 18--  The Montgomery County school board met behind closed doors for more than two-and-a-half hours Tuesday night looking for ways to save money this year and next.

After coming out of executive session, board chairwoman Deloris James told those in attendance the board will be back at next Monday night.

"We appreciate all of your patience waiting on us tonight.  As you might appreciate, this school system is facing serious financial problems.  At this time I'm asking for a motion for a called meeting for Monday night, January 24th to discuss personnel, litigation and any other items which may come before this board," she said.

James says interim school superintendent Reggie Roberts gave the board some options on personnel cuts and salary adjustments for next year, however, she noted "we've got to make some immediate cuts in some places now to build our general fund for the rest of this year."

The chairwoman says she's hopefull some decisions can be made Monday night to help the school system in the short term.  Some of the people in the audience included staff members whose jobs could be affected by the board's decisions.
