Metro School Board decides not to sue state over $3.4M

Posted: Updated:
NASHVILLE, TN (WSMV) -

The Metro School Board has decided not to pursue litigation over $3.4 million they lost in state funding earlier this fall.

Board member Amy Frogge was the only person to vote in favor of filing a lawsuit over the fallout surrounding the Great Hearts Academies charter application.

Frogge made a motion for the lawsuit at Tuesday night's meeting as board members discussed ways to make up for the lost funds.

The state withheld the money after the board denied Great Hearts Academies a new charter school in Nashville.
