Last week the Albemarle County School Board announced their budget would be $1.8 million less than they originally planned.
The superintendent spent the weekend deciding where to make cuts, after County Supervisors put about $3 million from projected revenue into a reserve fund.
Wednesday night, Superintendent Pam Moran and her colleagues will present the School Board with their suggested cuts.
“The superintendent is working on exactly what the school board has identified in our strategic planning at our priority setting session that is important to us. I think the key is thought that not everything that we'd like to do can we afford to do,” said Sue Friedman, Chair of School Board.
Additional money could be on its way after tax revenues are collected through April. This year’s budget is expected to total 140-million dollars.
