Some Charleston Co. teachers expected to pay back money

CHARLESTON, SC (WCSC) - Some Charleston County teachers are being asked to pay back thousands of dollars the school district says they were overpaid.

At least 90 teachers are expected to return the money. The district found the error on the payroll after a regular internal review. It plans to work with teachers on a repayment program.

In Florence County, several teachers are expected not to show up for work Monday. Last Friday, some said they wouldn't be back because they didn't get paid.

The district is dealing with budget issues and many teachers are waiting on their paychecks and worry they won't be paid at all.
