The county school board will talk at its meeting on Thursday about alternative funding sources for the Canton school.
The meeting is at 7 p.m. at the Historic Canton School school board auditorium with a work session at 6 p.m.
The state Department of Education has denied the district's request for $40 million in qualified school construction bonds for the project.
The district last year submitted to the state requests for the bonds to fund construction of replacement facilities for both Teasley and E.T. Booth Middle in Woodstock. Each project would cost $40 million.
In April, district officials were informed that a $50 million cap was placed on the level of bond funding each district would receive, meaning both schools couldn't be funded.
In May, the district was informed the E.T. Booth replacement would be funded by bonds, but not Teasley. In June, the district received an application to resubmit its request for Teasley.
This month, the staff was notified the state wouldn't issue bonds to any district that already has received them for another project.
During Thursday's meeting, county Superintendent of Schools Dr. Frank Petruzielo will talk about other funding mechanisms, including possibly adding the replacement facility to its list of projects to be funded by a future Special Purpose Local Option Sales Tax referendum.
The board also will consider the following agenda items:
? Recognize Creekview High and Freedom Middle School's media center programs, Mountain Road Elementary PTA and Creekview Media Specialist Buffy Hamilton;
? Approval of amended partnership agreements with the Atlanta Area Council Boy Scouts of America, the American Cancer Society, the Cherokee County 4-H Program and Cherokee Bank;
? Approval of the August 2010 financial report and sales tax update;
? Approval of a board resolution to reimburse the school district for costs incurred in constructing the replacement E.T. Booth Middle School facility before the receipt of bond sale proceeds;
? Approval of issuing of tax anticipation notes for $15 million;
? Approval of out-of-state travel;
? Approval of out-of-state/overnight field trips;
? Approval of an update on capital outlay projects;
? Approval of a resolution to phase out the original E.T. Booth Middle facility;
? Approval of 2010-11 school improvement plans;
? Approval of resignations, recommendations, terminations and transfers of classified and certified personnel, including naming current Arnold Mill Elementary Principal Ann Gazell as the new Univeter Road elementary school principal;
? Approval of an updated five-year strategic plan; and
? Meet in executive session to talk about property acquisition.
During the work session, the board will hear an update on the district's application to receive money in President Barack Obama's Race To The Top initiative and review the district's draft 2011 Legislative Program.
