The Charlottesville School Board plans to ask City Hall for an extra $2 million for the next academic year. Half of that amount would go for a 1.5% salary increase for teachers and other employees. Superintendent Rosa Atkins wants to hire more teachers and create smaller classes for the youngest students at Greenbrier and Burnley-Moran Elementary Schools. Atkins also wants to create an instructional coaching model that will affect every school. That would involve hiring coaches and phasing out some coordinators. Atkins (pictured left) shared her goals during a Saturday work session with school board members. They include Ned Michie (second from left), Jennifer McKeever (second from right) and Colette Blount (pictured right).  Teachers and parents will get a chance to sound off about the proposals during a Thursday public hearing. The school board wkill meet at 5 p.m. Thursday in the library of Charlottesville High School.
