(WMC-TV) - Memphis Mayor A C Wharton has scheduled a 3:30 p.m. press conference at the Hall of Mayors to discuss the potential of a delay in the beginning of the MCS 2011-2012 school year.

The Memphis City Schools board voted to indefinitely delay the 2011-2012 school year at an emergency meeting last night.

Board members said they want the city of Memphis to pay millions of dollars owed to the school system before they will allow classes to resume.
