Chatham County Schools face over $700,000 in additional discretionary funding cuts

During its July 18 meeting, members of the Chatham County Board of Education and Superintendent Robert Logan approached the Chatham County Board of Commissioners about funding a $706,181 school district request to make up additional state education budget cuts. The commissioners did not fund the request, but left the door open for the Board of Education to specify its needs in meeting the additional discretionary funding cut.
