Demand Transparency on FY2018 FCPS Budget Cuts
Thank you for signing the petition!
The budget details have been released: http://www.boarddocs.com/vsba/fairfax/Board.nsf/fi... ( pages 130, 133, and 135)
The Fairfax County School Board is set to vote on the 2018 FCPS budget in May.
It is now the end of March - in town halls throughout the county the school board gave out the Superintendent's List of Potential Reductions for FY 2018 and some of them are shrouded in total mystery: Planning Dates set as "In Process" and $ Impact set as "TBD".
This is unacceptable so close to the vote!
Specifically concerning is the last item on the list "Contract Review" - which states:
"All service contracts will be reviewed. Options for discontinuing or modifying the service will be evaluated prior to initiating future purchases against current and new contracts."
We deserve to know what that spend is and how it can be trimmed before we start considering increasing class sizes and cutting student programs.
We demand to have this information available before the vote, AND THROUGHOUT THE YEAR!
