February 6-- The new school superintendent in Montgomery County is offering the school board some financial food for thought.
At his first meeting Monday night, Dr. Charles Warnock asked board members to think about some possibilities for saving money.
Dr. Warnock says the school system can save $46,000 by taking a furlough day instead of a make-up day for one of the two bad weather days the school system took in January.
He's also noting school system employees who are eligible for retirement can be offered incentive bonuses to retire in order to reduce payroll.
Also Monday night, accreditation certificates from the Georgia Accreditation Commission were presented to all the schools in Montgomery County and Mary Lou Lyons was named the system's Special Education Teacher of the Year.
