The Dougherty County School System has received two letters from the Georgia Department of Education questioning $167,000 in Title 1 Part A expenditures from fiscal 2011. The letters seeking more documentation arrived one month after the school system reimbursed the state more than $134,000 for unallowable expenditures.
Savannah-Chatham County school officials say, they expect some push-back because of new school reform ideas being considered as part of the federal Race to the Top program. Under that program, the public schools in Chatham County would get about $13 to turn-around under-performing schools and get students up to their reading levels. But the aim is to change public education. And that could ruffle some feathers.
