In the ongoing attempt to get disbursements from district schools, a panel of judges has ruled that Rutherford County schools must pay Thomas Jefferson Classical Academy $731,000. The disbursement is due whether or not it is applied to general operations or special programs like Head Start and Smart Start. The ruling will impact whether or not three Asheville charter schools will get funds from Asheville City Schools. They sued the school system for similar reasons.
