Albemarle Schools Begin Budget Cycle With Huge Funding Gap

The Albemarle Schools have kicked off a new budget cycle and this year’s funding gap is larger than usual.  Superintendent Pam Moran (pictured) says her school division needs nearly $ 7 million more than the available revenues.  Despite the funding gap, Moran says the county remains committed to a 2% salary increase for teachers and other school employees.  She says her school system also has a growing number of low-income kids.  The state is demanding an additional $ 2.3 million for the Virginia Retirement System, and medical insurance premiums are going up. The County School Board is planning several budget work sessions in the coming weeks. There will be a public hearing on Moran’s proposal at 6:30 p.m. on January 30th at the main County Office Building.
