Anticipating the fiscal cliff

December 12, 2012

If the leadership of Oconee schools wagered, their bet would be on a solution before the federal government’s financial condition falls from the cliff, forcing major funding cuts. Near the end of this week’s meeting Dr. Mike Lucas, superintendent of education, led the trustees in a discussion of what-if. If the fiscal cliff can’t be averted, according to Lucas, Oconee public schools would be impacted as early as the next school year: 2013-14 and would feel it first in the loss of Title One funds to help children from low income families meet academic standards.
