JACKSON, Tenn.-The Jackson-Madison County School System has decided to delay their budget vote.

The board met Tuesday night to discuss what do do next to get technology money from the county commission after they were denied funding, Monday.

The school board is also in a time crunch because the budget approval deadline is July 11.

New superintendent Doctor Verna Ruffin said she is trying to work out a plan with the county commission.

"I hope that we can have an open dialog, that we have an opportunity to know, what is it exactly that they're looking for in our plan and how we can articulate a plan that clearly shares a vision with what they would want for our public school system as well as what we need to be able to move our system forward," said Dr. Verna Ruffin, superintendent of Jackson-Madison County Schools.

The school board plans to announce a special called meeting sometime early next week.
