School board to get savings update

By: Staff report

LUMBERTON — The Board of Education for the Public Schools of Robeson County will get an update on Tuesday on “cost savings,” according to an agenda for its monthly meeting.

The meeting will begin at 6 p.m. at the system’s District Office, which is located at 4320 Kahn Drive. The Robesonian plans to live stream the meeting on Facebook.

The system this past year faced a $2 million budget deficit that subsequently was erased by closing some schools and consolidating others.

The agenda also includes recognition of Employees of the Month, Project Trash Talk winners, accountability recognitions, district spotlights on curriculum best practices, school surplus, and a policy update.
