After months of discussion and a joint meeting with the Gloucester County School Board, the Gloucester County Board of Supervisors is expected to make a decision Tuesday on whether or not they will continue with lump sum funding of the school board or will appropriate school money by category. The board will begin its meeting at 7 p.m. in the colonial courthouse.

If supervisors decide to go with the categorical method of funding, they will work with nine major classifications of school expenditures, according to information provided by Gloucester County Public Schools.
