                                  FCPS School Budget - FY 2016

The School Board is working hard to ensure full funding of next years budget from the Board of Supervisors. Attached below are budget talking points prepared by the School Board along with contact information for the Fairfax County Board of Supervisors and the Fairfax County School Board. Please contact the Board of Supervisors directly with your support and testify at their budget hearings. The Budget calendar is listed below:
         
     Of note:

  • Since FY 2008, FCPS has taken historic reductions totaling nearly half a billion dollars, which includes the reductions contained in the FY 2016 Advertised Budget, and more than 2,175 positions.
  • Our revenues have not kept pace with our budget needs, including our significant student enrollment increases.
    • This is challenging FCPS’ ability to not only maintain instructional programs and service delivery, but also our ability to address emerging needs, issues, and opportunities, and to keep our salaries competitive.

August School Start Input

As reported, Stuart's PTSA has been asked to put together some basic pro and con points regarding the potential for starting school 2 weeks early in August and ending 2 weeks early in May/June. This is not a PTSA recommendation or agenda item. The suggestion has been raised by the community and our local School Board official would like to gather preliminary community thoughts. Please send comments to fundraising@stuartptsa.org.

This is not a consideration for the 2015/16 school year but will be further discussed over the next several months.
