PITTSBORO, N.C. — The Chatham County School Board is hoping for some leniency from the North Carolina State Board of Education.

During a meeting Monday evening at Northwood High School, the school board decided it would ask for a class-size waiver in November.

School officials say the county has several classrooms that exceed the state recommendations for class size.

However, the classes are over by only a few students, officials say.
