Today is the day, all public school systems across the state will have to fork over three-quarters of a percent of their budgets.
It's all part of statewide budget cut ordered by the governor's office last month.
Public instructions' portion amounted to $117-million dollars, of which they've found $59-million in state expenses.
Here in eastern Carolina, Onslow county will take the biggest hit, having to return $941,277 to the state.
Pitt county is next with $912,035. The school systems had 30 days to cut funds.
