School Board Split on Filing Suit

The Metro Nashville school board is split on the decision whether to sue the state to force the return of $3.4 million the district didn’t receive last month as penalty for rejecting the charter application for Great Hearts Academy. The board came to no decision during a Tuesday meeting on whether it will move forward without the money or sue to get the funding restored. The board’s next regularly scheduled meeting is Nov. 13, The Tennessean reports.
