Parents, teachers urge supervisors to “fund our future”
The Loudoun Education Association, which sponsored the event, encouraged attendees to speak during the meeting.
“We can't cut anymore from the budget,” said Jeff Dunn, a Loudoun County parents and social studies teacher at Woodgrove High School told the crowd. “Our voices, our impact is what's going to make a difference.”
LEA vice president John Patton explained that the group is urging the board to adopt the proposed property tax rate of $1.23 per $100.
“We want people to speak about fully funding the schools,” Patton said.
Wednesday's public budget hearing is the first of two the Board of Supervisors will host. The next will be March 2 from 9 a.m. to noon at the Loudoun County Public School building in the Broadlands.
