A committee of the State Board of Education has recommended approval of the Gainesville school system's application to become a charter school system.
The Charter Schools Committee voted 4-to-1 Wednesday to send Gainesville's application to the full state board. The panel also voted 3-to-2 to approve the Marietta city systems application and 5-to-0 on the application of the Decatur city schools.

The district projects that by June 30, the end of this fiscal year, it will have spent $50.8 million, or $3.2 million more than the $47.6 million projected in expenditures when the City Board of Education approved the 2007-08 budget last June.
