Also provided Monday night, an update on the search for a new superintendent.

"With the chronically failing schools that we do have, that the governor has said that we have here in Chatham County, we need to make sure we have a superintendent that understands that and can work with that to bring those schools up without bringing the other schools down," said Johnson.

Twelve Savannah-Chatham County Schools are currently on the list of chronically failing schools.

The next town hall meeting will be Wednesday, March 29. It's at 6:30 p.m. at Brock Elementary School, hosted by Representative Ruby Jones.
