#FullyFundACPS

SUPPORT OUR SCHOOLS…#FullyFundACPS

City Manager presented the budget for the city of Alexandria. This budget does not fully fund Alexandria City schools. The Superintendent proposed a lean budget to the city earlier this year, but the city has many needs which are clearly undercutting our proposal. There is a $2.1 million gap between the Superintendent’s proposed budget and the City’s proposed budget which directly affects the schools’ operating budget. Of specific concern is that teachers’ salaries would not be competitive with our region and this could affect our ability to attract and retain teachers and staff.

Here is the link to the proposed city budget:  www.alexandriava.gov/Budget

Please consider expressing concerns about the budget, you can write to the City Council online: https://www.alexandriava.gov/ContactUs  or speak at the upcoming Public Hearing.
