COLUMBIA — Columbia teacher Jona Toalson is in her third year as a member of Columbia Public Schools' fourth- and fifth-grade science specialists program. The fate of the program, which may be cut as part of the district's attempt to balance its budget for the next school year, is expected to be decided on Monday by the Columbia School Board.
