The man who handles finances for the city schools says Virginia’s latest funding formula might mean more help from Richmond. Ed Gillaspie says the state’s number crunchers believe Charlottesville is a less wealthy place than it was a couple of years ago. One of the factors is student enrollment, also known as the average daily membership. Virginia has a formula known as the composite index, which is designed to provide more help to less wealthy school divisions.  It also sends less new money to systems that outperform the state in major categories.
