School Board Claims "Personal Vendettas" Behind School Funding Dispute

The Beaufort County School Board could end up taking the Beaufort County Commissioners to court over school funding.

The commissioners did not allocate the funding the school district requested. At a meeting Thursday night, the school board passed a resolution saying, "The proposed budget is not based on the needs of the school system or funds available, but rather personal vendettas and indecent motivations that are unseemly for a public body."

The school board authorized court action if mediation with the commissioners fails. Keep watching WITN for more information on this story, including reaction from the commissioners.
