Chairman York: Supervisors won’t grant Loudoun County schools full funding
While not necessarily a surprise, Mr. York's statement during tonight's joint meeting of the two boards was the strongest public pronouncement yet that the School Board will need to find cuts within its nearly $949 million budget for the coming year. Currently, the gap between the LCPS adopted budget and the anticipated county allocation is just less than $40 million.
Members of the Board of Supervisors and School Board will meet again the first week of March to further discuss their respective spending plans.
Supervisors are expected to finalize the county's fiscal 2015 budget in early April.
