School board faces additional cuts; teacher furloughs

Commenting is not available.

Newton County School Superintendent Dr. Steve Whatley announced that Governor Sonny Perdue has called on the system to cut 3 percent from their budget and for teachers to take three unpaid furlough days in order to assist in a $900 million hole in the state's budget.

"We are evaluating this impact on our budget and school system," said Whatley.

Members of the school board have called a special meeting at 8 a.m. Thursday morning to further discuss the situation.
