The Sullivan County Commission will hold a called meeting on Wednesday, October 2 to discuss funding of the Sullivan County Department of Education.

This comes as the school system warns it may to cancel school and suspend operations because the county’s school budget, which was approved by the county commission in July, does not meet state minimum funding requirements.

The meeting will happen at 6 p.m. in the Commission Room inside the Sullivan County Courthouse in Blountville.
