Budget Update- Feb. 16, 2017

This week the 4th grade strings program has been targeted as a potential cut from Fairfax County Public Schools due to a $61 million gap in funding from the Board of Supervisors (BOS).  The next step is to lobby the BOS for an increase to the real estate tax rate to increase funding for the schools.  Please write to the BOS asking for an increase to the tax rate to fully fund our schools. They vote on a maximum tax rate change on Feb. 28, 2017.
