(WBIR) The Knox County Board of Education is expected to finalize next year's spending plan Wednesday night.

The county commission approved about $424.5 million in school funding, which is about $7.5 million less than what the district requested. Wednesday night, school leaders are supposed to vote on what to cut from the budget.

Board members are also scheduled to vote on a new charter school for Knox County and a 30-minute extended school day at Vine Middle.

We'll have school coverage on 10News at 5 and 6.
