With the budget process pretty much complete, Roane County school officials are looking forward to starting the new year on time next month.
“Everything is good to go,” Board of Education Member Sam Cox said.
The first day of school is scheduled for Aug. 10. Earlier this year Cox said he was leery about starting the year without a budget. However, the Roane County Commission approved the system’s budget last week.
“We’ve got a budget,” Cox said. “That was my only hold up.”
