Gilmer County residents turned down a school levy last Saturday, and officials are taking a look at where to go from here.

Superintendent Sue Waggoner said she will be meeting with county principals to tighten the budget and control spending.

The levy went down by 184 votes, with only 27% of registered voters turning out for the special election.

Oddly, communities which could loose their schools because of funding problems, voted against the measure, said school board officials.

Three community schools are slated for consolidation with the Glenville elementary school, Normantown, Sand Fork and Troy.
