LCPS Budget Memo Shows Significant Funding Gaps

This budget memo was presented to the School Board Tuesday night outlining the potential gaps at the current county fiscal guidance of an equalized rate or 2 cent decrease in the property tax rate. It does not look good. Contact your Supervisor and Supervisor York now to tell them to advertise a tax rate that would at the very least maintain our schools per pupil spending rate and preferably raise teacher salaries as well. http://www.boarddocs.com/vsba/loudoun/Board.nsf/files/9DEKKW504665/$file/FY15%20Fiscal%20Challenges%20Memo.pdf

Capital Improvement Plan Proposed

The Superintendent's proposed Capital Improvement Plan (CIP) was presented tonight to the School Board. This is not the Operational Budget, but the plan for building new and improving existing facilities. These are decisions related to the quality of our school system. For example, Full Day Kindergarten is not in the proposed plan but is documented for discussion. The schedule for the School Board discussion and adoption of the plan is below. For the full plan, see http://www.boarddocs.com/vsba/loudoun/Board.nsf/files/9DDVRM820124/$file/SUPERINTENDENTS%20RECOMMENDED%20FY15-20%20CIP%20Document%20for%20WEB.pdf
