CHARLESTON, SC (WCSC) -

The Charleston County School District superintendent will seek feedback from parents Monday at one of the schools that could be impacted by the district's budget shortfall.

The school district is holding a community meeting at Sanders-Clyde Creative Arts School.

When the current budgeting process began, one of the options put on the table was moving middle school grades from Sanders-Clyde to the new Simmons Pinckney Middle School, district spokesperson Erica Taylor said.

No final decision has been made and it is possible such a move would not happen, she said.

Last week, parents of Sanders-Clyde students toured the new middle school. District Superintendent Dr. Gerrita Postlewait has said she would not make any recommendation for changes at the school until she has a chance to meet with parents to see what parents want for Sanders-Clyde.

The district-called meeting, which Taylor described as more of a "fact-finding meeting," is scheduled to begin at 5:30 p.m.

The Charleston County School Board voted on last week to close Lincoln Middle-High School in McClellanville. They voted unanimously to keep Edisto's Jane Edwards Elementary School open for one more year to discuss options.  

In March, the county school board voted to eliminate 117 teaching positions, saving the district approximately $7.3 million.
