School Board Budget Goes to County Supervisors
Posted on 03/28/2017
BudgetThe Prince William Board of County Supervisors (BOCS) spent much of their March 29 meeting getting a close-up look at the School Board’s advertised budget for the coming school year.

School Board Chairman Ryan Sawyers presented details of the FY 2018 PWCS Budget, and how it meets the needs of more than 90,000 students and 10,500 School Division employees next year and into the future. County Supervisors, School Board members and staff had a productive exchange on topics ranging from class sizes and school construction needs, to teacher pay and enrollment growth. 

Funding from county revenue provides approximately half of the total PWCS budget. Final BOCS approval for the School Board’s Advertised Plan is needed by the end of April. Any BOCS changes in expected revenue would require the School Board to alter its spending plans.
