Stacy McDaniel, Interim Superintendent Chickamauga City Schools, "The budget cuts is one of the main ones. We've been cut every year and we got cut again this year, so just trying to make it on the money we have and still give the children the best education possible."
She says they're also watching class sizes... they're a little larger this year.
