BLOUNTVILLE — Sullivan County’s school board got a crash course in budget revenues 101 during a half-day work session Saturday morning.

But the class project and end-of-course testing will begin next month at a May 11 meeting, where the board is to start wrangling with the expenditures in the 2013-14 budget while staying inside revenue constraints.

Officials said it might include not just elimination of teaching positions where employees are reassigned but some layoffs, as well as moving many instruction aides from full-time to part-time status.
