The pay raise could be reduced, teaching positions would be cut, and class sizes might be a little larger. Those are the latest proposals by the Albemarle school board as they try to close a nearly $4 million funding gap. That’s the difference between what the board wanted and what the supervisors came up with. School board member Ned Gallaway says class size would be increased by .2 students across the board, resulting in eight teaching positions being cut. The proposed pay raise would go from 2% down to 1%. The operations budget would be cut by 5%. The Albemarle school board will take comments April 24th before they hold another work session on the budget.
