The Jackson County School Board could spend up to $78,000 on emergency repairs for North Jackson High School.

The school's waste water lift station stopped working last week due to a part that pumps the school's sewage. Right now, the school system is paying more than $1,000 every few days for the sewage to be pumped manually.

Today, the board agreed to spend more than $58,000 on a new part to replace what is broken, and the board will be looking at another $10,000 to $20,000 to have it installed.
