Someone new holds the gavel at Albemarle School Board meetings. At-large member Ned Gallaway (pictured) has been elected as the new chairman, and Barbara Massie Mouly is the new vice-chairwoman. Kate Acuff of the Jack Jouett District is the only new member of the board. Superintendent Pam Moran says the school division received a diverse set of messages on Facebook this Tuesday. Some like the Albemarle schools’ decision to have a two-hour delay because of the brutally cold weather while others view it as a mistake. Moran and the school board will leap into the budget process next week. She will unveil a funding request for the next academic year at 6:30 p.m. January 16th at the main County Office Building.
