F.C. School Board OKs Its Budget

Following the adoption by the Falls Church City Council of its Fiscal Year 2016 budget last week, including its transfer amount to the City schools, the Falls Church School Board unanimously approved its FY16 budget at a session Monday night.

The “Doing More With Less” plan includes no staff increases, five fewer teaching positions (by way of attrition), while projecting 100 more students. It funds the second of a four-year teacher pay gap initiative, addresses fixed cost premium increases in health insurance and retirement, and increases funding for the Special Education by six percent and English as a Second Language and remediation programs by nine percent.
