I hear the Superintendent is leaving, is this  true?
The Superintendent is not leaving. The rumor being circulated is incorrect. This rumor may have started due to HB 1509 and comments made by individuals if they were the Superintendent.
I hear that the teachers will be furloughed 10 to 15 days, is this true?

This information is not correct. Savannah News posted this statement out of context. It was used as a comparison example and not intended to be taken as an option being considered. The only option discussed regarding modification work days has been from two to four days.

Is it true that elementary schools are starting at 7:30am?
A proposal was presented to the Board on May 19 to have the elementary schools moved to the first tier, 7:30am, for the new school year 2010-11.

After much discussion, this plan will not be implemented. Bell tiers sequence will remain the same as school year 2009-10 with middle schools starting first followed by high schools and then by elementary schools. Elementary schools will remain divided into two tiers. Exact times will be presented to the board in the July board meeting for approval and posting on the public website.
