Moving into its first hearing on Superintendent Dr. Toni Jones’ proposed budget for the next school year, the Falls Church School Board was presented with financial overviews from City Manager Wyatt Shields and Chief Financial Officer Richard La Condre at its meeting tonight, including a thorough discussion of the options before the City on how to best deploy the expected $14 million net cash proceeds from the sale of the City’s water system to Fairfax County.

    Briefing the School Board on deploying the $14 million? How about just giving it all to them in unmarked bills? They’ll figure out what to do with it.

    The “<3 our school board" propaganda is a nice touch.

    If there's another tax surplus this year, the funds should be used to create a jumbotron screen to display those banners electronically.

    Nice to see the schools putting our kids to work making posters to thank politicians for spending other people’s money.
