The Albemarle County School Board will be having its monthly work session tonight. You can review the agenda and materials here: http://esb.k12albemarle.org/
Between April and October 2009, the School Board, staff and community will be updating the school division's strategic plan (last adopted in 2005). Staff and the School Board will spend about one hour at the meeting reviewing the proposed process and timeline. Our board packet includes important summaries from discussions at past work sessions.
This will be the final School Board budget work session before the budget is adopted at a special meeting on April 27, 2009. Following the adoption of a $0.742 tax rate by the Board of Supervisors on April 8, the local revenue stream is now known. Additionally some information will be presented regarding the federal stimulus funding available to the school division. Staff will be bringing forward proposals which address the use of these funds within the guidelines as known.
