The Chattooga County Board of Education made the decision to go back to an amended four-day school week schedule on Thursday evening, but that wasn’t the only news from Thursday’s meeting.
The vote to go to a four-day week with virtual learning on Monday was approved unanimously by the board. However, when it came to voting on the millage rate, two member voted against the majority to roll back the rate.
Dr. Julia Houston and John Agnew wanted to keep the millage rate the same, which would have resulted in higher property taxes due to the County Digest increasing for 2020.
In the end, the board voted 5-2 with Chairman Eddie Elsberry and Board Members Brad Hayes and Sammy Ballard voting for the rollback.
