November 8-- Enrollment has gone down in the Montgomery County school system.

Superintendent Randy Rodgers told the school board's November meeting that enrollment is down by 69 students and that translates to a loss of $252,128 in state funding.

He also reports the school system's operating budget is running a deficit.  The Superintendent says revenues to date are $1.9 million compared to $2.7 million in expenditures.

The board took action to rent the former school board office building to Concerted Services for $985 a month and an estimated savings in utility costs of $24,000 a year.

It also accepted a revised proposal from the Georgia School Board Association to assist with community involvement in strategic planning .  The association's quote of $29,500 was reduced to $2,000 plus staff expenses after scaling back its scope of work in negotiations with Superintendent Rodgers.
