Charleston school board looks at options to solve budget woes

CHARLESTON, SC (WCSC) - Charleston County schools will find themselves $28 million in the hole next year.

The school board came up with a few ideas to try to fix their budget woes.

They include combining Stall and North Charleston high schools, a 6 percent salary cut for all top level non-school administrators, cutting jobs in the district and cutting operational costs by closings and reductions.

Talks will continue on Monday to decide what direction the school board will take. A final decision is expected  on Feb. 28.
