Forecast Okayed
(WOUB) - The Ohio state auditor's office has okayed a troubled Meigs County school district's financial forecast for next year.

The Southern Local Schools in Racine have been in fiscal emergency since 1999.

The district is expecting to save nearly two hundred thousand dollars next fiscal year by eliminating three teachers and a maintenance worker and by moving some money around.

The projection is that Southern Local schools will have a reserve of nearly one million dollars at the end of June.

Superintendent Tony Deem said earlier this year that the state might LIFT the fiscal emergency in July.
